Here's a wonderful cup and saucer commemorating the Bluenose Ferry. It's made of porcelain has a transfer of the ferry on both the cup and the saucer. Each reads "Car Ferry Bluenose, Yarmouth N.S. to Bar Harbour, Maine." The saucer is 5 3/4" in diameter and the cup and saucer is 3" high. It was made in England by Delphine and is marked "Delphine Bone China Made in England" on the bottom of both the cup and the saucer. It has lots of gold decoration on it so it was a very fine souvenir of the time. The Bluenose started in 1949 on this route and this piece is probably from the 1950's. The condition is excellent.
