Large Cup and Saucer in Floral Design that is possibly a Tucker of Philadelphia. Pottery ware made from 1826-1838 at a factory founded in Philadelphia by William Ellis Tucker, who had found porcelain ingredients at sites near Wilmington, Delaware and in neighboring New Jersey. At first, transfer-printed landscapes and floral patterns were executed on porcelain. This is a large cup and saucer in good condition. The saucer is 6 7/8" in diameter and 1" in height/depth. The Cup is 3" in height and 4 1/2" in diameter. Beautiful colorful floral decoration in pink,blue and green colors with nice gold gilding. Foot and rim of cup is gilded as is the handle. The saucer also has nice gilding around the rim and center where the cup sits. Excellent Condition. Tucker pieces have become very rare. Fresh out of a Philadelphia Estate. This same Philadelphia Estate had over 65 pieces of small Rose Medallion pieces that we will be putting on our web site in upcoming days.
