Coffee Cup probably on balance not Christian but Richard Chaffers and Co. c. 1758 with obverse two Chinese ladies in blue and maroon at a Table and reverse a Chinese lady in maroon holding a tray of beverages accompanied by a child and another Chinese lady playing a stringed instrument called a Hugin, a string instrument that is vertically bowed. Similar cup per Watney p. 126 plate 253.

It is interesting to compare the Chaffers 'Chinese Family' decoration to that of the Worcester 'Chinese Family' (see the coffee cup on this site), the latter having a whimsical character with the addition of the animal with the large ears.
Just some very minor chips to base, probably the result of the means of support in the kiln
Phillips The Watney Collection 1999.
