Gloriously hand-painted over black and red transfer, multi-colored and made of sturdy English bone china, this collection, perhaps fitting for two, is one of the most beloved and collected exotic dinnerware patterns.
The flat cup, our favorite, is a delight. Beautifully flared, the teacup is supported by a scalloped, bowl-shaped saucer.
First manufactured by Coalport in 1801, the Indian Tree design is a garden of pink, green, teal blue, violet, flora amid a crooked brown centerpiece tree branch. A ring of honeycombed panels and metallic bronze frame the the scene, itself framed by a rim of pink and green bouquets and an incredible Greek-styled scalloped edge.
A work of art, stunning to hold.
Stamped with green mark dating 1920-1939
