Sorry, this item sold. Have meaicp make something just for you, or try these other items:
The lovely reticulated saucer measures approx. 5.25” across and the pedestal-style cup is 3.75” across (including the handle) and 2.75” high. There are no labels or maker marks on either piece. The gold gilding is in very good condition on both pieces. The lusterware finish on this set is quite good and there are no cracks, chips, or crazing. The saucer and outside of the cup are decorated with pale seafoam green and pearl white stripes with a gold gilding pattern. The pedestal form is exquisite. There is some light wear on the saucer, but nothing that detracts from the elegance of this vintage set. Overall it is in wonderful condition and would be beautiful to use or display. Very delicate and feminine!
The vintage hankie is approx. 11” square and is made of cotton with elaborate net lace borders with appliqued corners. The cotton center and scroll corners are light mint green . It’s in excellent condition and there are no imperfections, stains or tears anywhere – just lovely and done in a scarce color!
Finally, I made a matching tussie mussie corsage pin with olive velvet leaves and gorgeous velvet and organza millinery flowers in pale seafoam green to match. Vintage ivory flocked forget-me-nots are also tucked into the tiny golden cone. A bar pin is affixed to the back so it can be easily fastened on. It measures 4.5” high and 2.75” across – and is a perfect size to pin to your lapel, handbag, or anywhere a touch of pale seafoam millinery would brighten your day. Sweet and dainty!
Your set will be beautifully (and carefully) packaged together in a sturdy square gift box and tied with a matching bow (similar to the last photo) – it is ready for gifting right away. I’ll also include a gift tag made with a scanned image from my own collection – let me know the occasion and I’ll pick the perfect one. It would make a thoughtful gift for a hostess, birthdays, bridesmaids, a special thank you, or a holiday surprise. You may even want to treat yourself! It’s just a beautiful vintage set and I know you’ll love it!
