19th century Robert Cochran polychrome tea set in the “Pekin” pattern. This Asian-inspired tea set was made by Robert Cochran & Co. at either their Britannia or Verreville pottery factory in Glasgow, Scotland. It is identified as the “Pekin” pattern on the back and features two figures in a garden setting. It is transfer printed and hand painted in green, red, yellow and russet enamel, with gold lustre highlights. All of the pieces have a moulded design and have the same image on both sides. The set consists of a large teapot with lid, sugar bowl with lid and creamer. It is sold as a set of five items. Dates to the second half of the 19th century. We have only seen this pattern displayed on the National Museums Scotland website. A rare and charming set for display or for use during special occasions.
We also have matching tea cups, saucers and dessert plates. Sold separately. Scroll down to view.

There are minor flea bites on the inner lids (not visible from the outside) and one flea bite on the spout of the teapot. Variances in the glaze throughout. This is commonly found on pottery of this period and is not considered damage but is noted. No major damage, cracks, chips or crazing.
