Here is a Red Transferware Cup and Saucer in the Bombay pattern by John Maddock & Sons, England. The center of the saucer and the center bottom of the cup are decorated with a red transfer scene featuring a turreted house with a bridge. Monochromatic pink and red florals form a complex pattern around the rim of the saucer and both the inside and outside of the cup. Both the rim of the scalloped saucer and the rim of the cup have an embossed rope edge. The applied handle of the cup is also decorated in red.
The cup is 3-3/4 inches in diameter and 2-1/4 inches tall, and the foot of the cup is 1-5/8 inches in diameter. The saucer is 5-5/8 inches in diameter.
It is marked with the red Crown and Circle backstamp that reads "John Maddock & Sons Ltd. Royal Vitreous England" The pattern name "Bombay" is stamped above the crown. This mark was used by John Maddock & Sons circa 1896-1945.
The cup shows minor, normal wear around the rim and on the bottom of the foot. Although still very pretty from the front, the saucer shows heavy, non-discolored crazing. The saucer also has numerous, tiny, (less than 3mm) edge chips on the back that have discolored. The condition is reflected in the price.
