(3) Sets of English “Crown Ducal Admiral-Blue” Demitasse Cups and Saucers ~ Cobalt Blue and Gold Encrusted ~ A G Richardson & Co Ltd England 1925-1960

What a rich and elegant group this is! The rims of the cups and saucer have gold bands embossed with geometric designs. A deep cobalt blue band is underneath the gold and then another gold band is next to the brilliant white cup base and saucer center. Gold accents have been painted down the cups handles adding just that little extra. I have seen this style of cup called coffee can style due to the straight-sided shape. The contrast of the gold, cobalt and white is wonderful! There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.

Backstamp: Crown with Crown Ducal made in England on one set, Made in England on two cups, Crown Ducal Made in England 5056

Measures: 2 7/8" W with Handle, without 2" W x 2 1/8" H, saucer 4 1/2"
