A fine quality, 18th century, Wedgwood jasper dip tea cup and saucer. Both the cup and saucer are marked “WEDGWOOD”, along with a large letter “A”, and they date from c.1790. The letter A is a workman’s mark. It was part of a large tea and coffee service, most of which is decorated with the signs of the Zodiac. We have split the service and are selling all items individually. Many other items can be seen on our website. 

The cup is decorated with a wide band of scrolls and flowers and there is a central cartouche depicting Cancer, the crab. The saucer is decorated with the same banding. Both the white jasperware and the relief decoration are of the finest quality, typical of the eighteenth century. Both the cup and saucer are in excellent condition, with no damage or restoration.
