Royal Stafford created this gorgeous Bone China Footed Teacup and Saucer covered in Berries and Gold Leaves and named the pattern Golden Bramble. Another Royal Stafford teacup designed for those with discriminating taste, this lavishly decorated cup and saucer set features plump, ripe blackberries trailing on the vine. Interspersed with realistic berries yet to ripen, the plum purples of the ripe berries blend perfectly with the pale greens and pinks of the ripening berries. The vines are accented with leaves in satiny gold. Three concentric bands of gold circle the outside of the teacup above the gilded foot and three matching gold bands circle the center cup well of the saucer. A single gold band circles the berries in the bottom of the teacup. The cup handle is gold decorated and the scalloped rims of both the cup and the saucer are also gold-trimmed.
This opulent teacup measures 2-1/4 inches tall and 4-inches in diameter at the scalloped rim. It stands on a 2-inch diameter foot. The matching saucer is 5-3/4 inches in diameter. The cup shape is very similar to Royal Albert's Avon Shape.
It is stamped with the pattern name “Golden Bramble” in gold, followed by “Royal Stafford Bone China Made in England” in blue. “Bone China” is framed in blue. This mark was used by Royal Stafford China circa the 1950s. Through several mergers over its more than 150-year history, the new Royal Stafford was formed in 1992 and is still in business today, however, the Golden Bramble pattern has not been in production for some time.
Aside from a few insignificant utensil marks, particularly in the gold bands, There are no condition issues.
