Edwardian Teacup and Saucer And Cake Plate, Blue And Orange Flowers. English Antique China Tea Cup Trio. Perfect For An Afternoon Tea Party

Description ~

This English teacup trio is a true antique from the Edwardian era. The beautiful transfer printed pattern of flowers, garlands and swags is very beautiful and typical of the Edwardian era and 1910s. This set is in lovely shades of terracotta orange and a rich royal blue. It really stands out against the white of the china. The petals of the flowers are hand painted. In an especially lovely touch, the flower pattern is continued inside the teacup too.

There is a maker's mark for Cartwright & Edwards China of Stoke on Trent, who during this period operated from their Victoria Works, hence the 'Victoria' stamp underneath the crown emblem. Stoke-On-Trent is the very heart of the English potteries. This teacup trio is a beautiful example of an English tea party table setting from Edwardian England. Elegant and eye catching, this pattern is just as lovely and desirable today as when it was made in the nineteenth century. The elegant shape of the teacup is one that was popular during the Edwardian period. This trio would stand out proudly on your tea table and would also display beautifully. The perfect trio 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 and pretty vintage china! This trio would also make a wonderful gift for a special occasion such as a birthday or Mother's Day, or for someone who loves baking cakes.

Condition ~

In good antique condition. There are no chips, cracks or crazing to the glaze. There is rubbing to gilding in places, on the teacup rim and the rims of both the saucer and tea plate, which is to be expected due to age and use, but this is minor and commensurate with age. There are some little flecks in the china in places, predominantly in the inside of the teacup and on the underside of the saucer and tea plate. This is a natural occurrence of the contemporary manufacturing process at the time and reflects the trio's history. Please remember this is a genuine beautiful antique teacup and cannot be expected to be in standardised modern manufactured perfect condition. Any further wear or marks are commensurate with age.
