Royal Chelsea Demitasse Cup and Saucer with Country Scene in Green
This English Bone China Demitasse Cup and Saucer by Royal Chelsea with its detailed country scene centered on Roman ruins is a real gem!
Both teacup and saucer show a pastoral scene in green with black highlights set against a white background. The front of the cup and the entire saucer feature Roman ruins in the background lightly reflected in a lake. In the foreground, swans appear amongst the cattails near the shore. The swans and ruins are framed by a pair of trees, and birds fly overhead. In the far background is a castle which is placed on the back of the cup and is part of the scene which appears on the saucer. The both cup and saucer are edged in gold with tiny little scallops and the handle is edged and highlighted in gold.
The teacup is shaped like a miniature mug with sides that rise straight from the base. The demitasse cup measures 2 ¼ inches high and 2 1/8 inches in diameter. The saucer measures 4 ¼ inches in diameter. This fabulous teacup and saucer set is in superb condition with no cracks, chips, fleabites, or crazing. The backstamp places the words Royal Chelsea in a curve above an anchor with English Bone China curving underneath the anchor. "Made in England" appears in italics below and the decorator's mark 44CA on the cup. Can you really resist this little demitasse set with its precious little scene?
