Pair of Georgian Tea Bowls and Saucers

Pair of Georgian Tea Bowls and Saucers

SKU: RJ01790
£50.00Price

Early European tea drinking gained popularity in the 1700s.  At first England imported its teaware from China because it was difficult to locally replicate the fine porcelain used in Chinese teaware.  The invention of the handle on a tea bowl was utilitarian and allowed the British to comfortably hold a cup of hot black tea in fine china. 

 

Here we have a pair of hand painted tea bowls, these would have been used in a wealthy household.

 

The condition of all pieces are good, some slight paint loss.

 

Dimensions : Tea bowl 5cm x 9cm
