These 6 Russel Wright, Flair, Ming Lace cups and saucers are in the rare green "spring" color, vs. the more common brown "autumn" color. The leaves are real and were placed in the cups in order to warm and personalize each piece. This was the first time anything like this had been done in a massed produced line ever, and it made each cup unique and individual, even though they were production line items.

All 6 of these cups have the leaves placed on the back of interiors of the cups when the handles are facing to the right. Presumably this is for use by right-handed persons.There are versions out there with the leaves placed on the opposite interior side that are presumably for use by left-handed persons. The fact that there are leaf-placement cup variations (ie. L. vs R. handled versions of cups) is not really recognized out there in the RW fan-club world at this time, but the reality of it exists none-the-less!

All 6 of the cups have a faint but noticeable stain across the inside of the cup. This is not uncommon with this design. All 6 of the saucers have NO obvious staining issues. I have read that stains can be reduced / removed using different techniques / products, but I have not tried any of these methods. There NO chips, gouges, cracks, scratches, or the like.

A great opportunity to own an example of RW's iconic spring-colored Ming Lace Flair that will display quite nicely and is more and more difficult to find.
