Vintage Foley Teacup Trio. 1930s Cottage Garden Tea Cup, Saucer and Cake Plate With Sunflowers And Delphiniums. A Pretty Tea For One Gift

Description ~

Dating to around the 1930s, this English trio is very pretty. The elegant transfer pattern of an English garden is transferred printed onto each element of this trio. Sunflowers, blue delphiniums, poppies and other cottage garden flowers bloom either side of the stone pavement which weaves its way into the distance. The rims have delicate gilding. This tea set trio really stand outs, whether on the tea table or on display. It is definitely a very stylish trio that is perfect if you love the style of the 1930s and is perfect if you have a home from this era, or if you wish to bring a touch of 1930s style to your home! The pattern is very eye catching with its bright colours and is perfect for a summer tea time or even tea in the garden! It would make a lovely gift to a tea lover or for a special occasion such as a birthday or baby shower. It would stand out at any prettily styled tea party. Manufactured by E. Brain & Co Ltd, under their Foley China lane and produced at the Stoke-on Trent pottery works in Fenton. Fenton is a well known and highly collected English china brand. The hand painted pattern number '774' can be found underneath teacup.

Condition ~

In sound vintage condition. There are no chips or crazing to the glaze. There is some wear to the rim gilding in places, which is perfectly commensurate with age and use. The teacup has an ever so slight wobble when sat on the saucer, due to a little dimple in the centre of the saucer that occurred at the point of manufacture, so that the base of the teacup cannot sit quite perfectly flat on the saucer centre. However, this is very minor and does not affect the soundness or usability of this set. The pattern is in lovely condition. As can be seen in photo 10, there is the faintest small hairline crack of about 1cm in length and about 2cm along in front of the handle if one if drinking right-handed. It does not affect the usability or soundness of the teacup in anyway. Any further wear or marks are commensurate with age. Please ask for further photos. Price reflects condition.

Packaging and Shipping ~

Your item will be prettily gift wrapped for free in vintage style brown paper and ribbon.
