This cup and saucer is an expensive, personalised object. It was decorated, like much Nantgarw porcelain, outside of the factory. The blue ground and gilding pattern are copied from fashionable Paris porcelain. It is marked on the underside in gilt script ‘Welsh Porcelain / Asser’, indicating it was sold by the firm of Henry Asser and Co, one of the principal London china dealers.

See Nantgarw Chinaworks Museum for factory details
