An intricate screen of gold bird's nest branch detail decorates a colorful turquoise on the exterior of this Aynsley beauty. Look beyond the exterior branches, into the interior, and discover a gorgeous surprise.
Against bright white bone china, a stunning blue and green feathered yellow-bellied bird, its wings in flight, passes through a lively world of brilliant pink, yellow, lavender, and blue flowers along with deep green and yellow foliage. Beautiful.

Condition: Very Good. Three very minor flaws from manufacturing are noted: one small black speck on the interior of the cup, one thin line of turquoise paint to the white foot of the cup, one tiny pimple beneath the surface rim. The saucer has very, very light utensil marks in the well consistent with past use.
Otherwise this colorful set is free of chips, cracks, stains, crazing, or any wear. The colors are incredibly bright and the trim is intact with no wear.
