The colorful and feathery blue, pink, and yellow tails of two birds of paradise, perched and facing each other, is matched by pastel colored flowers and a tan colored border rim.
The saucer is from a different color and design detail which most likely belonged to another color scheme of the same pattern. With a green leaf border and lavender floral and black outlined branch detail, this saucer replicates the same two birds as seen on the cup. Put together this rare pair makes a very charming antique addition to any teacup collection.

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.
