PURPLE TRANSFER WARE Large BREAKFAST or JOKE CUP AND SAUCER
Wood & Sons English Scenery
For consideration is this highly collectible and hard to find Joke cup and saucer depicting pastoral scenes of English life with a lovely peony and rose floral border. So pretty!
Joke cups are very hard to come by as they are so overszied. I am not sure when the term joke came into being for them but for decades these large pieces have been referred to as such. They are very collectible in and of themselves. I have two or three in my personal collection which I use for small plants like ivy, etc. They are lovely just to display or for a nice bowl of soup!
Measures: Saucer is 7" Cup is 5 3/4" handle to rim x 2.75" tall Both in very good condition with no chips, cracks, or nicks.
