Cup and saucer
Caughley Porcelain Factory ( British, 1770 - 1799 )
- c. 1790
In its early wares, the Caughley Factory closely followed the forms and decoration of the Worcester Factory. However by the 1790s, Caughley's designs had become more individualistic. With its ribbed walls and delicate blue and gold flowers, this twenty-two piece tea service is typical of Caughley's neoclassical wares and reflective of Europe's move away from curvilinear rococo decoration.
