Derby Porcelain Sweetmeat, Extremely Rare c1756-8
Please refer to our stock # zp509 when inquiring.
A charming and early Derby diminutive basket form sweetmeat, with delightful floral painting by the Cotton Stem Painter. This form, which is uncommon in blue and white, is almost unheard of in polychrome, with virtually no examples having been offered at auction in the last 10 years. An example is shown as illustration 44 in Gillespy's book on Derby Porcelain.
In overall very good condition, with a very old repair to one of the handles. The basket is 3 1/2" in length, 2 1/2" in width, and 1 3/4" to the tops of the handles.
