Condition Notes

The saucer has broken and been glued together.


Ex coll. Mrs. E. Tatnall (Mary Corbit) Warner.  A note in her handwriting on a paper label applied to the underside of this saucer states that the tea and coffee service to which it belongs was acquired by Capt. James Jefferis for his daughter Ann, who married David Wilson Jr.


This deep saucer is part of a partial service of one slop bowl (1971.757.1), three coffee cups (1971.757.2-.4), a tea cup (1971.757.5), thirteen deep saucers (1971.757.6-.18), and four small plates (1971.757.19-.22).  The service is decorated with black transfer-printed designs of "Stately Homes," being images of English country houses and ruins.  This saucer shows an image of large country house (possibly Chatsworth) with a body of water in front and a hill in the background.  The rim has  a thick and a thin gold band around the inside.
