A signature pink rose is his calling card.
J.A. Bailey worked for Aynsley China between 1937 and 1974. This magnificent turquoise and hand painted (you can see the brush strokes) floral teacup represents one of the most sought after collectible tea cup artists from one of the most desired, elegant English bone china producers.
The floral artistry speaks for itself. The flowers are vivid, alive, and in their prime. The spectacular pink cabbage rose breaks through the pack of deep colors, unfurling its graceful petals with a sophisticated flair.
Beautifully glazed and trimmed with bright gold trim, in particular the handle, this glossy cup and saucer are timeless show stoppers. Step aside and wait for the compliments.

Teacups are like small pieces of jewelry-they tell a story, they are displayed, shown off with pride, and prized from one generation to another. Like jewelry the time comes when such beauties are not so 'minty" young. And yet these lovely items have lasted so long for a reason.
They are still in their prime. Seasoned with time-honored character.
