Assembled Set of Worcester blue and White Soft Paste: pear shaped bottle
Overall: 11 in. (27.9 cm)
painted: on bottom: hatched crescent
Pear-shaped bottle with squared footrim with slender narrowing neck, with bulge near top; bulge is bracketed by a wide geometric designed border above and a narrower one below; body is printed with flower sprays, pine cones, berries, and two butterflies, the "Pine Cone" pattern; mark in the form of a hatched crescent.
The square footrim, complete glaze on the bottom, and the yellowish tone to the paste argues that this might be Caughley and not Worcester.
