This beautiful cup and saucer set has a soft grey ground, and 5 hand painted vignettes of ruins, cottages, churches, and scenery. There is lots of gilding. , and no two pieces are alike!
The style of handle, which is called a "broken loop handle", is one feature which dates the set to 1830-35. The fine painting and gilding are indicators of "quality". This set would have been costly in the 1830's.
The pieces are marked only with their pattern number, 236, and not with the maker's name. I have not been able to identify the maker.
This set is in excellent condition. There are no chips, no cracks, and no repairs. There is some slight wear to the interior gilding of the saucer's design. Both pieces ring when tapped.
I have 5 matching sets available. Each hand painted landscaped vignette is unique. The price shown is for 1 cup and saucer set.
