Here is a pair of jolly egg cups. One features a large green plaid elephant, a smaller polka dot horse, a patchwork kitten, and saddle-stitched dog, duck and bunny. The other features brightly colored leaf shapes, as well as fanciful geometric shapes in bright colors. All of the pictures have saddle stitching at the edges to resemble appliqué and all are hand painted under the glaze. These are sturdy unmarked ceramic pieces. Cups are double-ended, the large cup measuring 2 3/4" across and 2" deep while the small is 2" wide and 1 3/8" deep; each about 4" tall. Very light crazing under glaze. Slight paint loss to elephant's front foot (shown).
There’s bit of excess slip under the glaze at small end edge of one cup (photo 1). A cheerful little pair perfect for children or for a collector of egg cups!
Antique and vintage porcelain, pottery, glass, collectibles and, of course, knick-knacks too!
