Vintage Teacup Trio With Purple Flowers, Tulip Shape. Hand Painted 1930s English Vintage Tea Cup and Cake Plate. For A Very Pretty Tea Party

**I have previously sold trios in this pattern, that were in slightly more pristine condition than this one I now have available, hence the slightly lower price than the trios sold in this pattern previously. It is still in very good condition. 1 available. Price is per trio**

Description ~

This exceptionally pretty hand painted teacup trio, is by English Staffordshire china pottery Chapmans Longton Ltd, under their 'Standard China' label. Manufactured in the 1930s, it has an exceptionally pretty transfer printed floral pattern, which has then been coloured by hand painting. The colours of the flowers are the most wonderful shades of lilac, green, orange and yellow. These colours contrast brilliantly against the bright white of the china. The beautiful floral pattern, combined with the delicate and dainty teacup in a 'tulip' shape with a footed base, makes this tea set especially dainty and elegant. I was particularly delighted to find this set, its in wonderful condition and is very English in its style and daintiness - perfect for a vintage styled tea time. It would also make a very special and beautiful set to give as a very special and one-off Christmas or birthday gift. This tea set would stand out on your tea table and would display beautifully.

The Standard China 1930s mark is underneath each piece of china, along with a registered number of 779047. The hand painted pattern number 5142 underneath the teacup.

I also have a matching milk (creamer) and sugar set in the pattern, as shown in photo 8. This can be viewed via the following link:

Dimensions ~

Teacup: Height 3 inches (7.6cm). Diameter rim to rim, excluding handle, 3 inches (7.6cm)

Saucer diameter: 5 3/4 inches (14.6cm)

Tea Plate width: 6 1/4 inches (15.8cm)

All measurements approximate.

Condition ~

This tea set is in good vintage condition. There are no chips and only the smallest amount of crazing to the glaze, which is very hard to spot. There is some slight wear to the rim gilding in places, that is commensurate with age and use. There are a few very very tiny pin prick flecks in the china in isolated places, which occurred at manufacture and are simply a reflection of the manufacturing process of the time and reflect the age of the set. There is some very faint and minor crazing to the glaze in the tiniest amount in isolated places, which is perfectly normal for china of this age and era and does not spoil or affect its usability at all - crazing to the glaze is not cracks. There is one exceptionally tiny hairline crack, of less than 0.5cm in length, running from the teacup rim, towards the handle. It is not where anyone would drink from, does not affect soundness or usability and is exceptionally minor. The slightly lower price of this trio compared to ones I have previously sold in this pattern reflects this point of condition. Any other wear is commensurate with age and any other minor blemishes there may be are as a result of the manufacturing process of the time and reflect the character and era of these pieces - please remember these are vintage items of great age and cannot be expected to be in modern mint condition, but are in very good vintage condition. Please just ask if you would like any further photos.
