Gorgeous under glaze blue with hand enamel red, orange and green decoration. Finished with stunning gold gilding a wonderful antique item over 200 years old.The can marked underneath in the foot rim with hand written number 6 or 9 in gold the saucer the number 10 in red the tea cup number 6 or 9 in gold these are workman's marks or tally marks. The pieces are Coalport shape but the quality of the decoration makes me think they may have been outside decorated possibly by one of the London studios of the period.
