What a delightful set! The Wedgwood company was always known for its excellent design, and this cup and saucer set from the early 19th century is a wonderful example of their perennial good taste. I’ll let the fanciful curves and colors play on your imagination for a while. . . . . Okay, now you like it as much as I do. Condition is excellent, but the gilding on both pieces is slightly worn, with the rims extensively worn. The saucer is five and five-eighths inches in diameter. This design was first printed in black outline, then filled in by hand with colors and gold. I’ve never seen butterflies in these colors in real life, but they’re scrumptious.
