Description

The flourish of brilliant copper lustre which completely covers the finials, coupled with the prominent flare of the tea service pieces, evoke thoughts of blaring trumpets.  Pieces are sometimes found with an impressed "No. 2", a mark found on other Elsmore & Forster body styles.  Examples of Fanfare pitchers have been found sporting botanical motifs and having air holes near the upper handle joints and in the base - a puzzle to learn more about!
