The Fancy Fox has clarified that the Derby Porcelain Cotton Stem Painter Water Bottle Guglet c.1760 (LA355345) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c.1760
Condition is very good: there has been a neat repair to a small area of the rim and a small, shallow chip to the foot rim. This latter coincides with one of three evenly spaced grooves in the foot which would have assisted in the firing process to prevent the foot sticking or to free it from the kiln floor and so the chip may have occurred during this manufacturing process. No other damage and no restoration. The gilt to the rim has faded somewhat and a little also to the gilt bands around the neck. Otherwise handling wear is very light with the enamels showing minimal loss.
