Cylindrical with gold overglaze decoration, hand applied. The bottom with the blue Minton mark for 1805-6. Rarely are we able to date antique porcelain this closely. The period was that of the Napoleonic Wars. (The Battle of Trafalgar was 21 Oct. 1805 and Beethoven's Fifth Symphony was written 1804-8.) Slightest gilt wear only and no damage.
