This set of six vintage Mottahedeh Blue Canton cups and saucers date to the late 1980's and were produced in Portugal by the fine firm of Mottahedeh. The Blue Canton pattern is an exacting replica of early Chinese Export porcelain and each saucer is marked Mottahedeh "Historic Charleston Reproductions". Blue Canton is a classic pattern that is appropriate for every entertaining need. These pieces are the finest white hard paste porcelain, highly glazed and accented by crisp cobalt Chinese landscape and pagoda designs. The cups have a footed base which fits perfectly into the shaped saucer well. They are the appropriate shape and size for tea or coffee. I can't imagine a more versatile cup. Classic Blue and white design is timeless and these cups and saucers will be a delight in any collection or interior.
