Royal Worcester - Five Vintage English Bone China - Demitasse Sets Floral Bouquet Pattern RW211
And lovely they are! Five beautiful quality sets! Not a ding, chip, stain, scratch, or repair. The gold trim on the cup handles and the rims plus the gold on the saucers is 100% intact. These were displayed but not used. Like new, but no box. Two cups and three saucers still have their Inspected stickers attached.
The pattern shown on a popular china matching service is a numbered one, "RW211". The only RW211 pieces shown on line are cake serving plates and Demitasse sets. The demitasse sets can also go with the Royal Worcester dinnerware pattern called Bournemouth. The RW211 and the Bournemouth dinnerware use the same central floral bouquet motif featuring the pink cabbage rose with surrounding English flowers.
This style cup is sometimes called a "can" whether it is a demitasse size or a larger coffee cup, flat on the bottom and not counting a handle, the cup is as tall as it is wide. These cups are 2-3/8" Tall X 2-3/8" Diameter (across), without the handle. With the handle they are 3-1/4" wide. The saucer is 4-7/8" Diameter.
Besides demitasse, these little cups are sometimes called espresso or after dinner cups. Taking into consideration the coffee house popularity of the Mid-Century era and the Royal Worcester back marks, I believe these were manufactured from approximately 1956 until around 1963.
They are a delight and are ready to display or use.
Thanks for looking, enjoy your day, and don't let these get away.
