Oyster Duo


Samuel Alcock (1822-1859 Staffordshire England) was one of our most prominent 19th century potters and his rare fine china wares are sought after by collectors worldwide.

This is a beautiful teacup and saucer made by Samuel Alcock, circa 1844, during the Rococo Revival era. The cup and saucer have a decorative twig and berry pattern on an oyster ground with moulded gilded rims. The cup has a very decorative designed handle which is of special interest. And did you know that moulded rims on teacups help your lips taste the tea better?

Alcock bone-china is of good quality , well potted and often very richly decorated. In 1833 the factory employed more than 400 people and their 20 kilns equalled those in use by Minton. Most of Alcock’s useful porcelains of 1830-40 are unmarked that is why the firm is so little known.
