How rare to find a full dozen porcelain cups in saucers in a beautiful pattern! These have a bell-shape bowl with a ring and spur handle, and a gently shaped rim. The painting is a warm putty grey with gilt serving as a wide border of triangular divisions. The white centers have sprays of flowers in natural colors. No maker's mark save for a painted 3600 pattern number. My guess would have been Ridgway or Rockingham, but Berthoud shows a cup of this shape attributed to Minton. No matter what manufacturer, these are a lovely, quality set of cups of the 1835 period.
Size: Saucer diameter approximately 5.75"; cup top diameter4 .125", 2.75" high at handle.
Condition: Quite good for a set this large. Two cups have re-attached handles (well done, and not obtrusive); one saucer cracked, again not intrusive (this is the one shown alone in photos). Some slight wear to gilding on a few rims.
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.
