Pair of Roslyn Harmony Teacups With Summer Flowers, Hand Painted. Vintage Tea Cups and Cake Plates, With Pink Roses, Ideal For Afternoon Tea

PLEASE NOTE: The price shown is for the PAIR of trios.

Description ~

This pair of beautiful and rare hand painted trios, is by English china manufacturer Roslyn, were manufactured around 1958. They have an exceptionally pretty and unusual summer flowers pattern, consisting of pink roses and yellow, blue and orange flowers, arranged in a little posy, which is transfer printed and coloured by hand painting. The colours of the flowers are the most wonderful bright summer shades and they contrast brilliantly against the bright white china, the grey of the detailed surrounding grey transfer pattern and hand painted bright green leaves. The luscious elaborate floral pattern, combined with the delicate and dainty teacup shape, makes this pair of trios especially beautiful and elegant. I was particularly delighted to find this set, as its so beautiful! Its the perfect pair of teacups for a summer tea time, vintage wedding or garden tea party or lunch. It would also make a very special and beautiful set for a Mother's Day tea time, or to give as a very special and one-off birthday gift. This little tea set would also stand out on your tea table and would display beautifully.

The Roslyn china mark is underneath each piece of china, along with the pattern name 'Harmony'. The hand painted pattern number '8757' is underneath the footed base of each teacup. The mark dates this set to around 1958. Photo 6 also shows the printed signature of the pattern artist, cleverly concealed with the grey pattern on each tea plate, which is very quirky and unusual and something which I loved discovering! It reads 'R.S. Durber'.

Condition ~

This pair of trios are in very good vintage condition. There are no cracks or crazing to the glaze. There is some very slight wear to the gilding in places, that is commensurate with age and use. There is also some minor wear to the painting of the small orange flowers on the two tea plates and one of the saucers, due to the thickness of the paint. This is commensurate with age and use and does not spoil the set. One of the saucers has the tiniest little flake of a chip out of the underside of its rim. Its too small and faint to photograph well and does not affect the soundness or usability of the saucer at all. As its also on the underside, it can not be seen from the upright patterned side of the saucer. Any other wear is commensurate with age and this set is in very good condition. Please just ask if you would like any further photos.

This pair of trios will arrive boxed and gift wrapped in beautiful vintage style brown paper and ribbon, making them all the more perfect to give as a gift.
