This Royal Standard #1445 Midnight Blue Paisley Chintz Cup and Saucer is one of three in slightly different blues offered at Maggie Belle's Memories. The all-over Midnight blue paisley chintz motif covers both the outside of the cup and the saucer. It is a mesmerizing design of flowers and paisley scrolls in shades ranging from dusky grey-blue to medium to midnight blue with a touch of black for a dramatic accent. The rim of the fluted cup, the high, curled handle, the base of the cup, and the scalloped rims of both the foot and the saucer are gold trimmed. There are three #1445 Blue Paisley cups and saucers listed separately due to their distinct color variations. This is the darkest of the three.
The dainty cup is 3-inches tall, 3-3/8 at the top of the handle, and 3-3/8 inch diameter at the fluted rim, 1-7/8 inch diameter scalloped foot. The matching saucer is 5-5/8 inch diameter.
The underglaze back stamp is a green crown followed by the words "Royal Standard Fine Bone China England.” The pattern number, 1445, is also on the foot of the cup in black. This mark was used by Royal Standard from 1949 to 1966 before the company became part of Royal Doulton in 1969.
There is a pinhead sized edge nick on the backside of the saucer that can be seen with a magnifying glass. This does not go into the gold on the rim. There is also a small place on the cup where the transfer pattern was missed. There are no other condition issues.
