A small, but relatively tall and extremely rare Beaker, almost in the shape of a frustum of a cone, carefully and clearly painted in paleish and dark tones of blue with a seated lady holding a bunch of flowers, a child leaps in the air in front of her. The decoration also includes a solitary, bare willow tree and a strange rock behind which grow gnarled roots, and on its top sprout bunches of flowers.
The "Jumping Boy" pattern.
Three-character pseudo Chinese mark. c1758-60
STEPPES HILL FARM ANTIQUES was founded by William (Billy) Buck over fifty years ago. About twenty years later he was joined in the business by his two eldest sons; David and Christopher. Billy’s first love is early English porcelain, but he also specialises in collectable silver. David concentrates on the silver side and is responsible for putting this web site together. Christopher, as well as being a partner in Steppes Hill Farm, has his own business dealing in fine Georgian furniture and accessories.
Over the years we have been privileged to have formed a number of well known private collections of both Ceramics and Silver and as well as building friendly long term personal relationships with our clients, we also regard the academic approach as all important.
