A delightful demitasse coffee cup and saucer in the ever-popular Derby Imari pattern. The rich cobalt blue and iron red hand-painted decoration, topped with rich and copious gilding, make this pattern an all-time favourite.
The cup measures approximately 2.2 inches (5.75 cm) in diameter across the top rim, and the saucer 4.2 inches (10.5cm). It is in perfect condition.
The mark shows the date code for 1929.
I have five of these, and the decorators' marks vary, but they were all sold as part of the same boxed set. I have a sixth cup and saucer, but the cup has a restored handle on which the gilding has dulled. If you buy all 5 perfect cups, I will include the sixth free of charge.
