BROWN POLYCHROME TRANSFER WARE OVERSIZED JOKE CUP & SAUCER
Joke cups are very hard to come by as they are so over szied. 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, a nice bowl of soup or a big cuppa tea!
Measures: Saucer is 7" Cup is 5 3/4" handle to rim x 2.75" tall
Condition: Excellent, no chips or cracks. I found no crazing.
