DESCRIPTION: This antique porcelain Cup and Saucer Set on white porcelain is elegant and in very good condition. The fancy design includes both transfer and hand-painted work. The cup features clusters of small pink roses on pale pink background connected with fine details of raised gold scrolling. The outer border is in mint green color accented with molded scrolls hand-painted in gold. The cup rim, base and handle are embellished with gold. The flat saucer is a perfect match and a beautiful base to hold this ornate cabinet set.
Blakeman & Henderson were commissionaires or exporters of fine porcelain, and pieces under their brand were always brilliantly decorated with superb results. The company operated between 1892-1912.
WHY I LIKE IT: The intricate details and excellent condition is a fine testament to a porcelain piece well-made. The antique design is elegant against a beautiful mint green accent color.
