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. I have several of these sets, and no two pieces are alike!
The style of handle, which is called a "broken loop handle", is one feature which helps us date the set to 1830-35. The pieces are marked only with their pattern number, 236, and not with the maker's name.
I am offering a $30 discount on any of my shop's merchandise to the first person to absolutely identify the maker of this cup and saucer! So get out your reference books...
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.
