Very stylish Spode etruscan shape cup and saucer with a serpent handle with coiled tail at the lower terminal, c.1817-1825. The saucer has a small well in the centre to hold the cup steady, not as deep as a trembleuse style, more to prevent the cup sliding about I would think but an unusual feature. Bold decoration with a bright orange ground with stylised white flowers on a coiling gilded vine, pattern number 878. Wide gilt rims and gilded detail to the snake handle. Both pieces marked SPODE 878 in red.
The cup measures 6.3cm (2 1/2") high, 9.2cm (3 7/8") rim to rim and 11.7cm (4 1/2") rim to handle. The saucer measures 15cm (5 7/8") wide and 2.5cm (1") high.
Condition is very good with no damage or restoration. There is a little surface wear, mainly in a few spots to the gilded bands in the centre of the saucer, and a very little to the rim. The cup has very minor wear to the lower edge of the enamel band in a couple of places.
