Offered here is a pretty Pink Carnations Teacup and Saucer by Queen Anne Bone China, England. A variety of pink carnations in shades ranging from deep pink with red accents to pale pink with hints of gray, including a variegated blossom with white petals and deep pink edges, adorn the front of the teacup and the left side of the saucer. A matching spray decorates the right side of the saucer, and a single bud is on the back of the cup. All of the flowers are accented with life-like green stems, leaves, and buds. The fluted and scalloped rims are gilded, and the foot and handle of the cup are also decorated with gold trim.
This enchanting teacup measures 2-3/4 inches tall and 3-1/2 inches in diameter. It stands on a 1-7/8 inch foot. The matching saucer is 5-3/4 inches in diameter.
It is stamped with a black crown mark followed by the words "Queen Anne, Bone China, England." This mark was used by Shore and Coggins for their Queen Anne line from 1959 to 1966. There is also a gold artist's mark on both pieces.
There are three or four pinhead-sized stray marks just below the gold on the front of the cup. These seem to be under the glaze and may have occurred in the production process. Other than minor wear on the gold rim consistent with use, there are no other condition issues.
