Pattern 2/8053

The border decoration on this piece totally ignores the piercings, which is not a practice found at Cauldon Place. The pattern number is done in the border grey, and, for that reason, is barely readable.

The leaf dessert dish is 254mm long, 228mm wide, 62mm high at the handle. Bone china.

Pattern 3/9199

Greek Revival patterns were done by a number of factories, including Cauldon Place, in the mid to late 1850s. Mostly jugs and vases were produced, but occasionally flatware as well. This one shows the Samuel Alcock mark used on these pieces, and the pattern number, done in the background black, has the characteristic "No." to the left of the lower part of the number. The 3/ series at Cauldon Place was only used for fancy wares, never for dessert wares. The 3/ series at the Broad Street Works was used for ironstone wares and earthenwares, never for bone china.

The dessert plate is 228mm in diameter. Bone china.
