Elijah Brain purchased the Foley China Works in 1885 and continued production up until 1963 when it was taken over by Coalport China.
This bone china teacup and saucer set of pastel-colored flowers, with sky blue border trim and a rainy gray detail, is a jovial choice for a friendly afternoon gathering.
Beautifully smooth and clean, bright white, it's everything just right.

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.
