Antique Mason’s Porcelain Gilt Pagoda 19 Piece Tea Set Circa 1810. Offered for sale is this very well printed partial tea set of early 19th century transfer printed teapot, waste bowl, creamer, tea bowls, coffee cups and deep saucers. There are 6 teacups, 2 coffee cups, and 8 saucers. The set is printed in blue on white porcelain, with heavy gilt decoration, gold rims and handles. Chinese seal mark on the underside of all pieces, as well as a gold “49” which is the pattern number of the heavy grapevine gilding. The set dates to circa 1808 – 1815. It was produced either by Miles Mason or by his sons CM & CJ Mason, who took over the business in 1812. During the 18th century, a great deal of Chinese hand painted blue and white porcelain was imported into England by the East India Company. This left a big hole in the market, which English potters rushed to fill with wares printed and gilded to look just like the Chinese export ware they replaced. The teapot is 6 inches tall by 10 1/2 inches wide from spout to handle. The creamer is 4 1/2 inches tall by 5 1/4 inches long. The waste bowl is 2 1/2 inches tall by 4 1/2 inches wide. The tea bowls are 3 1/2 inches wide. The coffee cups are 2 3/4 inches wide. The deep saucers are 5 1/2 inches wide. Condition: The teapot is in excellent condition save for one tiny flake on the gold of the spout, as shown. One coffee cup has a small hairline, One tea bowl also has a hairline and a small exterior stain, as shown. There is a small dark spot inside the waste bowl. The other pieces are in excellent condition, with little wear on the lavish gilding. Two cups have crazing of the glaze; these two are shown separately, not in the group. Thank you for your interest.
