This pretty bone china trio / tea set of single tea cup, saucer and plate would make a lovely addition to a summer tea party. The design goes well with other floral china but you could also mix it with plain colors. The listing is for one tea cup, saucer and plate but I do have 3 available.

See my other listing for a matching sugar bowl and cream jug

Royal Stafford is a brand name of an English company from Staffordshire called Thomas Poole. Thomas Poole pottery was founded in 1880 and was formerly known as Johnson & Poole. The 1845 date on the pottery mark is likely to come from the inception of the earlier company. In 1952 the company was re-formed to become known as "Royal Stafford China" an amalgamation of the two firms of Thomas Poole and Gladstone China Ltd. The backstamp on this china indicates it is post 1952 but otherwise is difficult to date.

The pattern “Patricia” is a discontinued pattern and looking at the style and condition of the pieces I would think they are likely to be from the 1970s or 80s.

The plate measures 6½ ins across, the saucer 5½ ins across and the cup is 2⅝ ins high and 3¼ ins wide. All are in good 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.
