Description

Hand painted John Aynsley & Sons 1939+ Floral & Gilt Filigree on black teacup & saucer set pattern #2627 unsigned

Quite extraordinary and stunning teacup and saucer set made by Aynsley with a hand painted floral design featuring a pink rose in the center of the footed teacup. Both the teacup and saucer have a gilt filigree pattern over black, the very center and bottom of the saucer being white and the foot of the teacup being white and gold. The teacup's handle is also painted gold.

It is thought the floral center of the teacup was hand painted by an apprentice as it appears to be unsigned. Green backstamp with "Bone China" and "Est 1775" on it dates the set to 1939 or later. Both have "30" under their backstamps. The saucer has a stamped pattern number 2627 but the teacup does not.

Teacup: 5" wide x 2 3/4" high (both measurements include handle) Saucer: 5 3/4" diameter

No crazing, chips, cracks, or loss to gilt.

Aynsley's long history began in 1775 when John Aynsley established his business in Lane End (later Longton), Staffordshire, England decorating pottery. It is believed that by 1810 Aynsley was manufacturing its own pottery. John Aynsley's son James took over the family business but died in 1841. The company did not truly prosper until under the leadership of John Aynsley II who had incidentally joined the company at the very young age of 9 after his father passed away. He partnered with Samuel Bridgwood in 1861 and opened the Portland Words in Stoke-on-Trent. The company began manufacturing fine translucent white bone china rather than pottery. Although Bridgwood left the company in 1863, the company continued to prosper eventually leading to, in the late 1800s, receiving from Queen Victoria a custom order for a set of tableware to commemorate her Diamond Jubilee. The company still exists today manufacturing fine china. The gilt is as always 24k gold and hand applied.
