This is a beautiful Old Tea Cup and Saucer Bowl. The Teacup shows Faith, Hope and Charity. Deeper bowl type saucer . Wishbone style handle. In good condition considering this set is over 100 yrs old. Featuring age appropriate wear, no identifying marks. I believe it is English Staffordshire . There are no makers marks . Decorated with transfer prints of faith hope and charity . Normal crazing and some discoloration noted I have not tried to clean this item but find it looks wonderful as is! The tea saucer measures approx. 1 1/4" DEEP BY 5 1/2" ACROSS . THE TEACUP 2 1/2" TALL BY 3 1/2 " ACROSS THE TOP. I NOTE ON THE saucer RIM---it is under the glaze and may be a small DEFECT.OTHERWISE EXCEPTIONALLY WELL PRESERVED.
