This pretty teacup and saucer set numbered 413 by Rosina Bone China, England, is decorated with February’s flower, the violet. clusters of dainty purple violets accented with green leaves and tendrils are on both the front and back of the teacup. The saucer has matching sprays of violets, a large one on the right side, with a smaller group on the left side of the saucer. Both the teacup and scalloped saucer are trimmed with gold on the edge, and the flat foot of the cup and handle are also trimmed in gold.
The bone china cup measures 3-3/8 inches in diameter and 2-1/2 inches tall. The matching saucer is 5-1/2 inches in diameter.
It is stamped with the pink and black Crown and Rose backstamp that reads ”Made in England" arched above the crown. “Bone China” flanks the crown and "Rosina" is printed beneath the pink rose. Rosina was a Trade Name of Queen's Pottery, formerly G. Warrilow and Sons, and this mark was first used circa 1952. The pattern number 413 is written by hand on the cup.
These are vintage pieces and may have minor flaws. There is wear including a tiny fleabite on the underside of the flat foot of the cup that does not show and does not impact stability. There is a dark scuff mark near the bottom of the cup that looks as though it occurred in the manufacturing process, and there are a few glaze slips on the back of the saucer. There are no other condition issues.
