How serenely beautiful.
A white exterior, rimmed in blue and tan scrolls is a sedate display of two floral bouquets against bright white. That's all. The interior is a different story...
A wide rimmed opening of blue and tan scrolled panels alternating with detail of a blooming floral country scene, curves and descends into a well that reveals a glorious single Bird of Paradise, in its colorful plumage and spreading its wings. Magical.
Origin: England; E. Brain and Co. pattern # V2651; pre-owned; c. 1936-1948
Dimensions: Cup-2 1/4"H x 3 5/8" opening
Saucer- 5 1/2"W
Condition: Great vintage condition. A slight imperfection to the application of the bouquet roses on the outside. Very, very, very faint blue paint stray spots to the white areas here and there are noted. This lovely set is highly ornate and the flaws are not seen unless looked for.
There are no chips, cracks, stains, crazing or wear. The colors are bright, the design is sharp and the glaze is well intact. Very nice.
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.
