Worcester Porcelain Manufactory, Thomas Baxter, Cabinet Cup and Stand, ca. 1814–16, porcelain (Museum of Fine Arts, Houston / Photograph: Bonham, 2021).

This Worcester porcelain cup depicts Mirza Abu’l Hassan Khan (1776–1845), the Persian ambassador sent to the English court in 1809. A figure of much fascination while in England, he was the subject of prints and poetry and was even depicted on porcelain objects.
