Wonderful Set of Six, Equestrian, Herring, Transferware, Tea/Coffee Cups and Saucers.
Copeland, Spode - England
The Herring Hunt Pattern was introduced in 1948 by Copeland, Spode, and discontinued by Spode in 2005, making pieces of this design highly collectable. Nice opportunity to purchase a set of six.
John Frederick Herring Sr. ( 1795 - 1865 ), was a highly successful and prolific artist. Today his paintings are extremely valuable. In 1830, Copeland commissioned many paintings, including designs used for the Copeland, Spode, Bone China.
Each tea cup has a design of a Red fox on one side and a hunt scene on the other side. Trimmed in Green with a light brown handle. The saucer is decorated with a hunt scene. Each scene has a different name which is stamped on the bottom of the cups and saucers. The cup is called, " Leaping the Brook". The Saucer is, "Gone Away".
Saucer measures 5 5/8" diameter. The Tea / Coffee, Cup measures 2 5/8" Tall.
Excellent Condition. All the cups are quite clean and usable. No chips or cracks or stains.
Please view all pictures as they are part of the description.
NOTE: I have a pitcher listed separately which is an additional piece to the Herring Hunt set.
