Favourite Item
Pair Worcester First Period Tea Fluted Polychrome Canisters, decorated with dragons and oriental scenes. The four panels on each cannister are decorated alternately with lions and mythical beasts and the Worcester interpretation of Chinese flowers. Each cartouche is surmounted by a continuous band of floral emblems.

Floral knops have been re-affixed to covers at some point, some small chips to the underside of one cover have been filled at some time of 1.50 cm. and there is one tiny chip left, and very minor loss to the petals commensurate with the age of these cannisters. Each cannister tilts very slightly off-centre, though both sit securely so there is no danger of their overbalancing. Our policy is generally not to restore.
