  • Description

    This tea cup and saucer is an early example of the popular Blue Dragon pattern first produced by Grainger, Lee & Co in the 1820's. The design was printed onto the china from a hand engraved copper plate and was inspired by a Chinese design of a dragon chasing a flaming pearl amongst the clouds. Different coloured versions of the design in several different colours were produced at the Worcester factories until the 1980's.
