4 - Beautiful English Demitasse Cup and Saucer Sets ~ Aynsley England ca.~1883
John Aynsley was very good at forecasting ahead of its time. As soon as he believed that tea drinking got into a habit, he started making tea sets and it made a big hit. In 1861 he moved into Stoke-on-Trent, the best porcelain town in Staffordshire. In the time of John Aynsley who was an owner and a skillful craftsman, Aynsley Company expanded very well by making bone china only. It is said that Queen Victoria liked the designs very much, and so Aynsley was deluged with orders from nobility following royalty. As a result, production went behind. In addition, Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth II and The Prince of Wales have all chosen Aynsley bone china for their homes.
