Victorian Teacup and Saucer, Entirely Hand Painted With Pink Roses And Flowers. English Antique China Tea Cup Duo. Antique Teacup And Saucer

Description ~

This English teacup and saucer is a beautiful antique from the Victorian era. The fabulous floral pattern is very beautiful and entirely painted by hand. There is no transfer printed pattern that has then been over painted. It has been painted entirely free hand with amazing skill. The colours of the pattern really stand out against the white of the china. There is no maker's mark, but, it is highly likely that this teacup and saucer was manufactured in Stoke-On-Trent, the heart of the English potteries. This teacup and saucer is a beautiful example of an English tea party table setting serving plate from Victorian England. Elegant and eye catching, this pretty pattern is just as lovely and desirable today as when it was made in the nineteenth century. The fancy open shape of the teacup, gently scalloped teacup and saucer rims and deep saucer, are all typical of teacups from this era. The china is beautifully transluscent when held up in the light - this teacup feels very special to use indeed. This teacup and saucer would stand out proudly on your tea table and would also display wonderfully with its bright colours. It is perfect for serving tea and cake at a quintessentially English teatime.

Perfect for a tea set or antique china collector, or as a gift to someone who loves tea, cake pretty china! It would also make a wonderful gift for a special occasion such as a bridal or baby showers.

Condition ~

In vintage antique condition. the hand painted decoration is in especially lovely condition, with bright colours and very little wear. There is a rubbing to the rim gilding in places, but this is minor and commensurate with age. There are some little tiny pin prick sized flecks in the china in places (mainly on the underside of the saucer and teacup where they cannot be seen with normal use). This is a natural occurrence of the contemporary manufacturing process at the time and reflects the teacup and saucer's history. There is the tiniest amount of faintest crazing to the glaze on one edge of the saucer, but this is so minor and perfectly commensurate with this set's great age. There are two isolated and very small little hairline cracks in the very bottom of the teacup - see photos 8 and 9. They are very old hairline cracks and do not affect soundness or usability, but the price reflects condition. Please ask you would like any further photos and please remember that this teacups is well over 100 hundred years old and therefore cannot be in pristine 'brand new condition', but is still in a lovely antique condition which reflects its age, history and character. It is perfectly sound and usable. Any further wear or marks are commensurate with age.
