This pretty pale yellow Paragon Bone China scalloped Teacup and Saucer is decorated with pink roses and blue flowers on an unusual 10-sided shape. The numbered pattern, S6507, features a floral motif of a large pale pink rose with blue anemone flowers accented with leaves and smaller flowers in matching colors. The large design decorates the front of the cup and one side of the saucer. A smaller, matching design is on the back and inside of the cup and repeated on the opposite side of the saucer. On a pale creamy yellow background, both the cup and the saucer are scalloped and trimmed with gold. Delightfully, both pieces have ten alternating panels with a very subtle lattice design in the mould.
The Double Warrant backstamp reads: "Paragon, By Appointment to HM the Queen & HM Queen Mary, Fine Bone China, England Regd." (Both Royal Warrants were issued by the respective Queens in the 1930's.) This mark was used by Paragon from 1938 to 1952. A hand written number "S6507" is also on the back of the saucer.
This delicate cup measures 2-1/2 inches tall, and 3-5/8 inches in diameter across the top with another inch for the handle. It has a 1-5/8 inch diameter foot. The matching saucer is 5-1/2 inches in diameter.
Though I do my best to list only items in excellent condition, fine quality Paragon China is an exception. The saucer has a small but noticeable edge chip at the two o'clock position that begins a 1/4-inch hairline that is well hidden by the leaf at that part of the saucer. There is also an indentation along the edge of the saucer at the 11 o'clock position that feels less glossy than the rest of the glaze. You can see it in the close-up photo of the edge. Other than minor wear on the gold, there are no other condition issues on either piece. The condition is reflected in the price.
