I am not sure if this cup and saucer started out together. The cup is white porcelain, ring-handle form, with red painted Spode mark. The unmarked saucer has a slightly darker tone, and a slight orange-peel to the glaze. Design on both is a band of grapes and leaves in brown tones, with tendrils and banding in gilt. Any differences between the two pieces are minuscule. But both are lovely, early pieces, circa 1815, and priced to account for the possibility of marriage.
Size: Saucer approximately 5.5" diameter, cup top diameter 3.25", height 2.5.
Condition: Usual wear to gilding. No chips, cracks or repairs. Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
