A rare pair of cylindrical cups and saucers, flat cut and gilded with flowers from the workshop of James Giles.

English, circa 1765-70.

Height of cup 5.9cm.  Diameter of saucer 11.1 cm.

A most unusual pair perhaps for drinking or dessert.  One cup has the classic Giles ‘tulip’ with diverging petals* one of very few Giles subjects found on both porcelain and glass.

The gold rim to the saucers shows wear but the flowers are in reasonably good condition.

*Hanscombe, S., 2005., James Giles: China and Glass Painter, Stockspring Antiques, London.
