Only one remaining of these "beautiful tea sets" as one happy customer has quoted. This classic English bone china tea set consisting of cup, saucer and plate would make a great gift for someone special in your life. It would also be perfect for a bridal or baby shower.

This set was part of a vintage set of Colclough china which was lovingly owned by the same family for over 60 years. I would love to get some more of this classic style to share with you in the future.

The Colclough china company was founded in 1890 by Herbert Joseph Colclough, who was an ex-Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent. He was passionate about pottery and was known on occasion to stay up all night next to his kilns, which he had packed, so that he could be the first to see the new designs when they emerged. After expanding his company, he moved to the Vale potteries in Longton and was honoured when in 1913 he was visited by King George V and Queen Mary who gave royal licence for the company to produce Royal Vale china. The backstamp on this lovely china dates it from the 1940s.

The plate measures 6⅛ ins across, the saucer measures 5½ ins across and the cup is 2¾ ins high and 3⅜ ins wide. All pieces are in good original condition.

The china will be carefully packed in bubble wrap inside a postage-style cardboard box.

If you would like to buy more than one item, combined postage might be possible. Please contact me to find out. Alternatively, you can make your purchases and I will issue a refund if shipping is less. For local pick-up arrangements please contact me before purchasing the item.
