The Fancy Fox has clarified that the First Period Worcester Porcelain Compagnie Des Indes & Rich Japan Coffee Cup & Saucer (LA225954) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c.1780
Condition is good; the cup has a small chip to the foot rim and a couple of other minor nicks and frits. No other damage and no repair or restoration. Surface wear is also minor, a little bit of rubbing to the gilt corn ring in the centre of the saucer and to the gilt on the rims.
