Cauldon Place Works
'Unhandled', 'Bute', and 'Grecian' shape
tea and breakfast wares

In view of the fact that the early patterns related only to style of decoration and not shape, or colour, or even whether a service was hand-painted or bat-printed, it seems sensible to combine the three shapes on one page. 'Unhandled' and 'Bute' shape saucers are identical.

Pattern 388

This is the same breakfast cup and saucer illustrated by Geoffrey Godden in his Ridgway Porcelains (Woodbridge, 1985), p.30, Plate 23. You can tell by the rubs in the centre of the saucer being identical. It is also the same breakfast cup illustrated by Michael Berthould in his A Compendium of British Cups (Bridgnorth, 1990), p.58, Plate 346 (also An Anthology of British Cups (Wingham, 1982), p.50, Plate 299). You can tell by where the underglaze blue spreads into the reserves. Ex Christopher May Collection.
I would be very grateful to learn of any other examples of this shape or pattern number that may exist.

Pattern 405

This pattern amply illustrates why I grouped all three shapes on one page. We have a 'Grecian' shape saucer dish with 'Bute' shape cup, can, and saucer. I bought the dish, cup, and saucer from the same source at the same time, so they most probably came from the same service. Only the dish has a pattern number.

Pattern 426

According to Dr. Godden this pattern is available in at least two versions, bat-printed in black, and hand-painted en grisaille, the only link being the double edge line, broad and narrow, in gilt. See G. A. Godden, Ridgway Porcelains (Woodbridge, 1985), pp.33-4, Plates 26-29.

This is another 'guess what it is' piece. The seller, I feel more in exasperation than hope, had labelled it a 'tureen stand'. I know of no tureen that would fit it. It certainly is heavily potted enough to be a stand, though I have come across pieces of this vintage that are undoubtedly plates, and equally heavily potted. It shows no rub marks one would expect to find on a stand.
The stand or dish or muffin[?] is 185mm in diameter and 35mm tall. Bone china.

Pattern 487

There would appear to be at least two different colour versions of this pattern. First with pink rosettes between the tablets of the design and a salmon ground, as shown below, and, second, with green rosettes and a straw ground.
G. A. Godden, Ridgway Porcelains (Woodbridge, 1985), p.2, Colour Plate 1, shows a 'Bute' cup with pink rosettes, and a 'Grecian' teapot and tea cup with green rosettes.

Whether this is a mismatched pair put together by a dealer, or whether the original purchaser ordered the service this way is far from certain.

It has been suggested the central plant is a stylised oak sprig with acorn. A coffee pod has also been suggested, but the stem seems too fragile for that.

This is another example of a pattern to be found in at least two colours. For the blue vase version click here.

For some peculiar reason all the pieces illustrated of this pattern seem to be on bought in blanks. The print, enamelling, and pattern number are absolutely right so the decoration was done at Cauldon Place. For examples of factory made cups and saucers see Pattern 2/676 below. For a factory made muffin of the same size see Pattern 2/818. Only the muffin is numbered.
