VINTAGE VIOLETS Bone China Tea Cup TRIO by Gainsborough, England

20% Off. REDUCED from £14 to £11.20

This delightful violets pattern Gainsborough ENGLISH bone china TRIO of cup, saucer and plate was made in Stoke-on-Trent in the 1940's. It is especially sweet and beautifully decorated with two posies of purple violets on each piece of bright white china.

All edges are richly gilded with the saucer and plate having pretty scalloped and gilded edges. It is in wonderful condition and looks like it was hardly used, if ever.

This charming trio would make a perfect gift for an avid tea or coffee drinker, for afternoon tea......making them feel very special.

Cup (across) - 8.5cm
Cup (height) - 7.5cm
Saucer - 14cm
Plate - 16cm

Excellent bright condition with no chips, cracks or crazing. Excellent gilding. Looks unused. Please see my photos.

I have a number of these trios so please message me if interested in more and I can combine postage.
