On a lovely pastel pink background, this Tuscan Bone China Teacup and Saucer is decorated in Gold and numbered 9059H. The top 1-1/8 inch of the teacup and the same width around the rim of the saucer is covered with an all-over pattern of scrolling gold filigree dotted with trios of tiny blue flowers. The inside of the cup is also pastel pink with a delicate gold filigree zigzag design around the inner rim. The scalloped rims of each piece are edged in gold, as is the handle of the cup. The foot of the teacup is layered with gold.
The teacup is 3-3/8 inches in diameter and just shy of 2-7/8 inches tall. The foot of the cup is 1-7/8 inches in diameter. The saucer is 5-1/2 inches in diameter.
Both pieces are stamped with the green underglaze winged crown with the words "Tuscan Fine English Bone China" and "Made in England." This mark was used by Tuscan between 1947 and 1967. The pattern number is hand written in gold on the saucer and appears to be 9059H.
There is a small amount of wear on one of the blue flowers nearest the cup handle, and a little to wear on the gold, especially near the rim. Aside from expected shelf wear on the foot, there are no other condition issues. The dark spot inside the cup is sticker residue and will be removed.
