Royal Dover Bone China Teacup Tea Cup and Saucer, Made in England

This set is in great condition. It does have a manufacturing 'dint' on cup footing. Nothing to see, only noticed by feel.

... no chips, cracks, crazing or stains.

Glossary of Terms:
Crack: A break in the porcelain, showing front and back.
Clean Crazing: Age related fine lines in the top surface glaze, not interfering with the integrity of the pot and not stained.
Stained Crazing: This is where the pot has been used after crazing has developed in the top surface glaze. The fine lines can become discolored from use...I have not found any efficient way to clean these and imagine they are permanent.
Chips: Areas where small pieces are missing, from being knocked off or 'chipped' out. Often found on spouts and footings.
Dints: Very tiny chips, hard to see, easier to feel.
Manufacturing dints: Bubbles or raised spots that have happened during manufacturing.
Rubs: Often where the saucer or teapot sits and happens from general use of the item.

Teacups and Teapots

While every effort is made to research the backstamps of all my china pieces, I am not an expert and often rely on my encyclopedia of British pottery marks, or the many online resources for tracking down dates of manufacture. I also try to slip in a shot of the backstamps, so the buyer can verify, or research the item themselves.
