The PRICE IS FOR TWO. A perfect color for Fall and Winter. If you prefer Four Cups and Saucer Sets, please search Castilian in this shop for a separate listing.
From the mid 1960's to early 70's this set of two Coffee (or Tea) Cups and Saucers are unmarked though the actual maker is well known to be Laughlin. Homer Laughlin sold their Granada shaped pottery to other potteries such as Coventry, Sheffield, Jepcor and others. These Cups & Saucers are the definite perfect match to Coventry's Castilian and may very well go with other Granada shaped patterns. You will find other Coventry Castilian items that are a definite match to these cups & saucers also in this shop.
Both of the saucers in these sets are in Excellent Condition. No cracks, chips, nicks or crazing found. Each of the cups have minor issues quite common to vintage pottery. As you can see in the close ups, one cup has a teeny tiny flake or nick on the upper rim by the handle and also has an uneven area on the unglazed portion of the base which I will classify as a chip though certainly not noticeable. The other cup has a short dark uneven line on the inside upper portion and rim of the cup that seems to be a crack in the glaze. These are minor issues, but because of them, these two cups and saucers are being listed separately from the other set of four within this shop and at a lower price. You may wish to purchase these with the set of four (for a set of 6).
By Coventry in Laughlin's Granada shape these are a perfect match to the other Granada Castilian Cup & Saucer sets, Coffee Pot, Tea Pot, and Creamer & Sugar also currently listed in this shop (See last photo).
*A word of learned advice and history: Please be aware that the subtle difference in shades of gold between some of the different designs on the Granada shape cannot always be detected in photos. Homer Laughlin sold their Granada shape to other potteries who then placed their own design on this shape. I have learned that all Harvest Gold Granada does not match or even coordinate that well because of different shades within the range of Harvest Gold. For example, even though Laughlin's Golden Harvest and Coventry's Castilian are both on the Granada shape and very very similar in color--they do not necessarily coordinate well together. One thing to remember when buying on line is that Homer Laughlin's Granada Golden Harvest is speckled and the Granada Castilian by Coventry, like these cups and saucers, is not. I do have both of these Granada Patterns within my shop and will try to make clear which ones coordinate together. Happy Happy Shopping!
This Mid Century Harvest Gold color is almost the shade of butterscotch. The last photo shows the Cups & Saucers with other matching pieces in this shop (listed separately).
