This listing is for your choice of one (1) of these lovely Crown Staffordshire miniature tea cups. They were all made around the middle of the 20th Century, from the 1930's to the early 70's. Made of bone china and decorated with transfers that were then hand-colored and embellished. All are marked with the green over-glaze Crown mark and some have various hand painted numbers and artist's marks.
These are not to be confused with the tiny cups that were part of the 9 piece tea set that Crown also made during the same era. One of these and also a typical full sized cup and saucer are shown in the last picture for comparison. The saucers measure 2 1/4" in diameter and the cups are 1 5/8" in diameter and just under 1" tall.
The two identical sets shown on the outside edges (multicolored posies on white) are just slightly different that the others. The cup shape is the same but the saucer is just a bit larger in diameter, maybe 1/16", and the material is a little thicker.
All are in very nice condition with 2 minuscule nicks; one on the saucer and one on the outside rim of the yellow cup. We have tried to show these in the close-up photos but they are very small and possibly done in the manufacture. The white marks on the cup are not the flake in question but camera reflections. It is similar in size to the more obvious one on the saucer in the same picture. Also some degree of very light crazing and possible manufacturing marks on all or some. Please inquire about complete condition of individual pieces.
We will try to keep this listing up to date as these sell but please inquire about availability prior to your purchase order. Price will go down for multiple purchases with no increase in shipping rate.
