This mid-century cup and saucer is manufactured by Taylor Smith Taylor in their rustic Weather Vane pattern. The modernistic shape is part of TST's "Ever Yours" line which included many designs familiar to those who collect from the Eames era. The country or farm scene on the cup features the Rooster in shades of brown as part of the black weather vane. An aqua blue tint just behind the rooster gives the hint of a sky. On the saucer-- a wagon wheel, a basket, and a few sheaves of wheat finish the design on the creamy ivory background. The inside of the cup offer a wonderful contrast of a latte brown--one of the browns from the chicken.
A small glaze pop is noted inside the cup but otherwise both the cup and saucer are in Excellent Condition. No stains, chips, cracks, or crazing on the cup or saucer and the finish remains glossy. The set comes to you clean and ready to use!
