Description
We have for sale an absolutely lovely and rather rare Regency William Billingsley decorated Swansea teacup and saucer c 1816-17. This finest Swansea duck egg porcelain teacup and saucer is of a moulded form and beautifully decorated with sepia and gold sprigs of roses and and what looks like Morning Glory. The bases of the cup and saucer both carry the Swansea script mark ascribed to the porcelain manufacturer and flower painter William Billingsley (see Swansea Porcelain, Shapes and Decoration. by A.E. Jones and Sir L. Joseph 1988 and also Swansea Porcelain, The Duck-Egg Translucent Vision of Lewis Dillwyn by Howell G M Edwards 2017, edited by Morgan Denyer, ISBN: 9780244325787). The decoration is very typical of his work and beautifully demonstrates Billingsley's famed wash out technique. The cup is 3.5 inches (8.9cm) in diameter and 2 inches high (5cm) whilst the saucer is just under 5.5 inches (14cm) in diameter. Both the cup and saucer are in a very good to excellent condition other than a small loss of gilt to the rim of the cup and a small chip (visible in image 4 at 10-oclock) to the foot ring of the cup.
