Porcelain tea service

A porcelain tea service attributed by provenance to the Delftfield Pottery Co and dating to the early 19th century.

The Delftfield Pottery developed several new product lines in the 1790s, including porcelain. The new wares were a response to the introduction of similar products by rival potteries. This porcelain tea service is part of the Watt bequest which was donated to Glasgow Museums in 1954 and which was associated with descendants of William Young (d 1820), a senior partner in the pottery during its later years. For this reason, and also because of the style and decoration of the pieces, experts believe that this tea service may have been made at the Delftfield Pottery between 1810 and 1820.
