A Barr Flight & Barr Worcester inkwell set depicting a Spaniel / Setter

A Barr Flight & Barr Worcester lidded single inkwell set depicting a recumbent red and white Spaniel / Setter. With marbled veined finish and mercurie oxide gilt decoration, imitating Italian scagliola marble, the inkwell provides for two quills and a central candle. The scagliola finishes were popular by the maker from around 1800 to 1820. The painting of the Spaniel / Setter is possibly by Enoch Doe (English, ca. 1785 - fl. 1851). On the base the hand written script marks read, beneath a crown, “Barr Flight & Barr Worcester manufactured to their majesties Prince of Wales & Royal Family”. This is considered to be the most elaborate of Flight and Barr porcelain marks. Together with the maker’s mark, in the same hand. Then incised ‘173’. English, circa 1815.
