Set of three Valentine's pattern(15N3)             £ 85
The Valentine's pattern was introduced on armorial porcelain for a service made for Anson and this pattern eventually evolved into the billing birds design which was used on a huge number of counters around 1780 - 1800. Here we have three shapes of the original design with Cupid's altar and his bow and arrows and quiver - plus the breadfruits that Anson was transporting. These are super counters and they have an intriguing history. They come with CoA and a copy of the full article on my website.
