Here is an interesting cup and saucer set with cottagey decoration for the middle range of customer and an unusual shepherd’s crook handle going almost straight up. The simple decoration is typical of the Hilditch, Rathbone and Machin porcelains. It appears to be pattern number 4, according to the mark on the bottom of the saucer. The saucer is five and three-quarter inches across. It has no wear but there are two small original flaws in the porcelain off the rim. Likewise with the cup—perfect condition except for an original rim tear in the body caused by the firing.
