The pretty flowers that grace this bone china cup and saucer are an artist's vivid imagination portrayed in time so many can enjoy the beauty of nature. The flowers could be Violas or Phlox or even Hibiscus...all dependent of the liberties the artist took for his portrayal. These, however are not hand painted, but rather a wonderful decal, so that there would be no mistakes and the original colors and vibrancy could be reflected on each and every piece of china. This cup & saucer set was made by the Delphine China Company in England, which was only in business from 1930 until 1946. This set is in excellent condition, with even the gilded rim and cup handle being more than 98 %.
