This romantic Royal Stuart Bone China rosebud flowered teacup and saucer was made by Spencer Stevenson, Longton, England between 1951 and 1960. The ribbed and scalloped cup and saucer are decorated with scattered pink rosebuds accented with spring green leaves and each paired with either a purple and yellow pansy, yellow daffodil, blue forget-me-not, or purple aster. The edges of both the cup and saucer are trimmed with brushed gold, and the cup handle and foot are also gilded.
The tea cup measures 2-3/4 inches tall and 3-1/4 inches in diameter across the top with another inch for the handle. The shallow 1-3/4 inch foot is nearly flat. The matching saucer is 5-1/2 inches in diameter.
The backstamp is a gold crown flanked by the words "Bone China" with "Royal Stuart" arched above and "Spencer Stevenson, England" in an inverse arch below. The cup also has some illegible hand painted gold numerals.
The only sign of age is minor wear on the gold. Imagine this charming set at your next tea party!
