A large section of history is revealed through a study of these small everday objects. Shape and design changed with the mode of the period. After the infamous Tea Import Tax was repealed in 1784 the petite early teabowl was replaced by a larger bowl in the 1785-1810 period. After 1800 the teabowl was gradually replaced by the more fashionable handled teacup. A wide array of cup shapes, ranging from the simple Bute form with a plain loop handle to the most elaborate Rococo Revival designs with elaborate curved arching handles, revealed the taste of their time. The coffee or chocolate cup was designed in the same shapes but was always found with a handle.

Molded, painted or printed
there is a wide range to choose from.

It is interesting to compare this cup with #26410. The body is much whiter and the glaze has a slight blue tint. This was probably made with the later harder body
