This little cup and saucer is sporting a nice deep brown transfer on a cream background. The border is particularly interesting. It includes a number of design elements embedded in stylized cartouches, clearly reflecting the influence of the Aesthetic Movement in England at the time. Here we see birds and other animals arrayed around the rim in large cartouches separated by a number of smaller cartouches, some of which repeat the center design. A beautiful geometric design is between cartouches, around the rims and also on the cups inside rim. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
