DESCRIPTION: From Wetley China – Sampson Smith, Ltd., Staffordshire England, this bone china cup and saucer set is colorful and delightful. The pattern is named “SwanSea”.

On pristine white porcelain, the vintage cup and saucer displays lovely traditional florals in vivid colors of pink, mauve, purple and yellow. Touches of mauve enamel brush strokes are added to give naturalistic dimension combined with detailed green leaves. Under a shiny glaze, the colors glisten with beauty.

The floral pattern continues inside the flat based cup; the rim and handle are decorated in gold and provide a lovely contrast to the florals. The cup is slender at bottom and ‘waisted’ at top with unique handle. The upswept saucer is a brilliant continuation of design and color, perfectly matched to its decorated cup and rimmed in gold.

WHY I LIKE IT: We especially like the unexpected enamel details found on this beautiful vintage cup and saucer set. This is a perfect teacup for summer tea or morning coffee on the patio or veranda!
