Picture yourself sitting under a shady tree sipping tea from this vibrant trio. This lovely china dates from the early 1930s. The Crown China backstamp was used from 1927 to 1935 and did not include the pattern name. The same pattern was later re-produced with a lighter gold after World War II and called Old English Rose. The name of the pattern was then added to the backstamp. Earlier pieces like these are now quite rare.

This tea set/trio is in great condition which is down to the previous owner keeping the china in her glass cabinet from new. The gold on this china has to be seen to really appreciate it; the thickness and vibrancy is quite unique and you can see the difference in the later pieces made after WWII. The plate measures 7 ins across, the saucer 5½ ins and the cup is 2⅝ ins high.

This listing is for one tea set/trio.
*The tea set (trio) comprises 1 x teacup, 1 x saucer and 1 x side plate.*

Please see my feedback from happy customers. Here are just a couple:

“Simply elegant vintage tea set. High quality products.”

“Gorgeous!! Thank you so much “

The china will be carefully packed in bubble wrap inside a postage-style cardboard box.
