The three pieces are moulded with 'shanked' (or spiral) lines which was the latest design in fashion at the later period of the eighteenth century. These moulded lines are very finely potted and create a most decorative effect. Evenly spaced around the body of the pieces are three blue and gilt 'Bluebell' flowers.
