Beautiful and rare Arklow Bone China Ireland Tea Cup and Saucer Set. This is the December Christmas Rose pattern. This vintage set includes details such as blue ribbon bows and a basket of White Roses and Holly on one side and on the other a smaller bunch of the same flora tied with a blue ribbon. Gorgeous gold gilt around the saucer and cup edges sets off the white china.

Tea cup measures 4" wide (including handle) by 4" tall. Saucer is 5 3/4" diameter. Marked Arklow Bone China made in Ireland, December Christmas Rose.

Excellent vintage condition. No chips, cracks or repairs. A couple of tiny scratches on the saucer from wear. The bottom is marked Arklow Bone China Made In Ireland December Christmas Rose.
