Vintage Teacup and Saucer With Oriental Green Dragons. Fabulously Hand Painted New Chelsea China Green And White Tea Cup Trio and Cake Plate

**I have previously sold two of these trios at a slightly higher price. This trio is not in quite as excellent condition, hence the lower price. It is still in good condition, perfectly sound, usable and lovely. Only one trio is available**

Description ~

This glamorous teacup trio is by English china manufacturer New Chelsea, of Longton, in Stoke on Trent, the heart of the English potteries. It dates to either the later 1930s or sometime in the 1940s (most likely after 1945 but before 1951, as this version of the New Chelsea maker's mark was not used after 1951). This teacup, saucer and matching tea plate is a very special find. Its transfer print of oriental inspired dragons and decoration, have had all their wonderful green colouring, in both dark and pale tones, hand painted with great skill.

This teacup trio really stands out, whether on the tea table or on display. It is definitely a very stylish trio that is perfect if you love the style and glamour of the 1930s and 1940s. It is ideal if you have a home from this era, or if you wish to bring a touch of vintage oriental inspired style to your home. The pattern is very unusual and is perfect for a smart tea table. It would make a lovely gift for a special occasion such as a birthday or baby shower. The New Chelsea mark is underneath.

**Price is for one trio. Please ensure you read the condition section below**

Condition ~

This trio is in good vintage condition, especially given this trio's age. There are no chips or crazing to the glaze. There is some wear to the rim gilding, which is perfectly commensurate with age and use. There is the tiniest minor little short and faint hairline crack at one point in the teacup rim, as shown in photo 10, but this is minor and barely noticeable. The teacup is still perfectly sound, usable and very stunning. Price reflects this point of condition. Any further wear there may be is commensurate with age. Please just ask if you would like any further photos.
