England , circa 1770
An exceptional First Period Worcester teacup and saucer with exotic birds. Very finely painted at the atelier of James Giles with colourful exotic birds and a gilded dentil rim.
The period from the Worcester factory’s foundation in 1751 to 1783, when it was acquired by Thomas Flight, is known as the First Period or the Dr Wall period after one of the original partners, Dr John Wall.
