Royal Worcester jewelled demitasse coffee cup
Royal Worcester - 1926
This shape of cup became synonymous with Worcester in the early 20th century and they made them in various colours, finishes and styles. This particular pattern combines a burnt umber tone ground with delicate trellis gilding and raised white ‘jewels’. Jewelling as a technique involved the delicate application of dots of enamel that are then fired to a jewel like quality. The top pieces of this type have fully gilded interiors and saucer centres.
