Description

Edward Walley decorated this widely popular design with a variety of lustre motifs.  In addition to the Tea Leaf and related motifs, Walley also used Chelsea Grape and other various painted patterns.

The flared round tea service pieces flow to an extremely low waist and then are sharply indented to a shaped base.  The shape of dinner serving pieces can be seen in the Register of Designs, British Patent Office, dated November 29, 1856.
