Porcelain tea bowl and saucer printed in underglaze blue with floral sprays with a double interior rim border, also printed, in bowl and saucer of hatched cells above a hatched scrolled garland.
Characteristics such as bright blue underglaze, pale yellow paste, and grainy glaze suggest that this object was manufactured in the late 18th century and possibly by Lowestoft.
