Striking and incredible!
A mother of pearl interior and an ultra unique scalloped rim...three dainty, flaring toes to the underside...an amazing milky, marble-like lusterware application...topped with bright gold scrolls makes this Royal Halsey porcelain pair an absolute must have. Gorgeous!
Origin: Japan; pre-owned
Dimensions: Cup-2 1/4"H x 3 1/4"W opening
Saucer- 5 3/4"W
Condition: Great. Two specks of gold loss to the top/ bottom of the cup handle (see photo).There is light age wear/rubbing to the gold on the scalloped rim top; since the trim was applied in a matted and sprayed form on the edge and top it is not easily noted unless you are looking for it.
There are no chips, cracks, stains, or crazing. There is no wear to the lusterware, and the gold is shiny. The glaze is intact. A stunning pair.
