The Royal Grafton company was founded in 1876 in Staffordshire, England by Alfred Jones, and continued to produce fine bone china items up until 1972. Originally, A.B. Jones & Sons Ltd. used the trade name "Grafton" and "Royal Grafton" after producing a variety of fine china items, but started to use the company name "Royal Grafton Bone China" after Queen Mary awarded A.B. Jones & Sons with a royal warrant.
This lovely bone china cup & saucer is decorated in a floral motif. The pattern consists of life-like images of shaded blue wildflowers nestled among green foliage on a white blank with gold trim and highlights. The saucer measures 5 5/8" across and the cup measures 3 1/2" across and 3" in height. Both pieces are stamped with the 'bone china' stamp used from 1957-1961. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint condition. Lovely addition to your cup and saucer collection.
