What an eye-catching and unique design.
Gold encrusted and embossed wheat heads, against a sky baby blue background, appear to be reflecting field sunlight in this amazing Queen Anne bone china teacup and saucer set.
Although green in nature, the blades are tinted in brown to highlight the sun dominant gold detail. A wide bodied scalloped cup rim allows for a generous 5 to 6 fluid oz. pouring. The white and gold trim footed base rests the cup on the equally stunning light reflective saucer. Striking.
Origin: England; pre-owned; pattern #5497
Dimensions: Cup-2 3/4"H x 3 3/8"W opening
Saucer- 5 1/2"W
Condition: Great. Some use marks to the center of the saucer and a section of missing paint to the blade in the interior are noted (see photo). A light blue painter's "tester" or swatch is seen on the underside of the saucer.
There are no chips, cracks, stains, crazing, or repairs. The design is clear, clean, and the glaze is well intact. The gold detail is shiny and solid and with no wear.
❤️ THE LOVE OF VINTAGE ❤️
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.
Our goods are unique, quality time pieces of the past which have been inspected, researched and carefully handled to be prized. We will never sell any teacups with cracks or major damages. Our condition findings, along with our photos, are detailed as thorough and honestly as we can see, as your satisfaction is our main priority.
