Coalport were known for their innovative, high quality designs. From 1824 to 1826 they had the good fortune of having the talented painter David Evans, after he worked at Swansea pottery and before he went on to work at Grainger in Worcestershire, where be became a defining artist in the Rococo Revival movement. This cup is early Rococo Revival. Some elements are still more Regency – a certain simplicity to the cup, the cup handle. But the heavily moulded surface and extremely rich paintings of wild flowers show a new style emerging. These flowers seem to have come out of a botany encyclopedia, and there are more species than you can count, all very truthfully painted and in incredible colours! Enjoy the eye candy.
