Vintage Art Deco Teacup and Saucer, Phoenix China. English Art Deco Yellow Tea Cup Trio and Cake Plate, With Hand Painted Tulips. Very Rare

Description ~

This beautiful teacup trio, consisting of a teacup, saucer and cake plate, is by English china manufacturer Thomas Forester & Sons Ltd, of Stoke on Trent, in the heart of the English potteries. It is under their 'Phoenix China' label and was produced in the late 1920s or early 1930s and perfectly captures the Art Deco design style of the era. It has a fun and quirky bright transfer printed pattern of tulips and repeating pattern motifs, which is has then been hand painted. The hand painted tulips are the most wonderful bright shades of yellow, lilac and pink and they contrast brilliantly against the pale pastel yellow of the china and the glamorous green, black and gold pattern motifs. These green, gold and black motifs are high art deco and bring extra style and glamour to this trio. This teacup trio captures the style and design of the Art Deco period perfectly and is lovely quality. It is certainly a statement piece which would stand out proudly on your tea table and display beautifully.

This is a very eye catching and pretty tea set, perfect for serving tea and cake with at a fun afternoon tea party or tea time. A lovely 'tea for one' gift for any occasion, or to give to someone who loves Art Deco.

The reverse of the set is stamped with the Phoenix China mark. In addition, the following pattern number is also hand painted alongside the mark underneath the teacup: '6770'.

Condition ~

This trio is in very good vintage condition. There is some minor faint crazing to the glaze in places on the underside of the tea plate, as can be seen in photo 10 . This exceptionally minor and hard to spot and does not affect soundness or usability at all. It is perfectly commensurate with age and use. There is a small amount of wear to the rim and handle gilding in places, which is commensurate with age and use. This is to be expected for a set of this age with a tea time history, though it is minor. The pattern is in good condition, with the odd small area of wear to the pattern. Any other wear is commensurate with age and use. Please just ask if you would like any further photos.
