This Adams Calyx Ware English ironstone set is in the pattern of "Singapore Bird". The service for 2 people includes 2 oversized teacups, 2 oversized saucers and 2 6" plates (Also called bread and butter plates) that could be used for lunch or dessert. The oversized teacups/saucers are quite rare to find! Replacements Ltd. has the oversized ones priced at $47.99 vs. the regular sized sets ($21.99). This entire set would sell for $120 from their site.
The color of this gorgeous set is a pale robin's egg green-blue background with an Art Deco style geometric pattern in thin dark red lines, with a light blue, pink, yellow and green design of flowers, leaves, and a bonsai style tree upon which sits an exotic bird. Teacup saucers are bowl-like for accommodating the teaspoon, tea bag or perhaps, tea spills! The teacups have an octagon of flat sides all around.
Teacups measure 2.5" inches tall X 3 5/8" inches across the top, including the handle. Saucers measure 6.25" inches across and lunch/dessert/bread plates measure 6" inches in diameter. All six pieces are in excellent condition, with the exception of one of the luncheon plates having a small chip on the underside. This is a very collectible and beautiful set. DRCC 31-2014
