This handle-less cup and saucer is in the "Shapoo" pattern. The pattern is a typical "oriental fantasy".
The transfer is a rich dark blue with nice flow. A nice clean example of flow blue ironstone.
Note that there is a later flow blue pattern with the same name by a different manufacturer.
Saucer has printed pattern name and manufacturer's initials (T & R Boote).
English, ca. 1850
Size: Saucer approximately diameter; cup top diameter, high
Condition: Excellent. 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, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
