Hot on the outside, cool on the inside.
A dramatic and dazzling ruby red glaze and gold trim invigorates your tea time while a light mist interior of pink, along with a mellow pink rose hints with a reserved "not so fast" demeanor.
This ultra shiny, eye-catching, rounded Elizabethan English tea cup has a beautifully scalloped ribbed pattern which feels nice and soothing to the touch.
Remarkable, this lady in red was made to be seen.
Origin: England; pre-owned
Cup: 2 1/4"H x 3 3/8" opening
Saucer: 5 1/2"W
Condition: Great. We noted three issues, all from manufacturing, none which detract from the delightful appeal of this duo.
The trim is bright and intact but there are two very minute bumps of trim near the handle; just trim that needed smoothing out. Also near the handle is a very small amount of tiny dotted pinhole glaze marks.
The saucer shows minor paint strokes of red that crossed over onto the edge of the pink center. These marks seem to add character due to the cup being hand painted.
There are no chips, cracks, stains, crazing, repairs or age wear to this set. It is bright, very shiny, clean. The design is sharp and with no wear. A lovely pair.
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.
