Antique Floral Pink & Green Bi Color Transferware Tea Cup & Saucer Circa 1830-40 Staffordshire
Brand John Meir
TWO COLOR TRANSFERWARE TEA CUP & SAUCER
For consideration I am offering this stunning, antique teacup and saucer from Staffordshire England in a rare two color transfer. After 1828, newly developed technology allowed potters to produce two and three color transfer wares. The pattern on this set is so delicate. The red transfer is reminiscent of coral in an all over pattern with cartouches around the border of the plate and its face and on either side of the cup which contain green florals. The cup is decorated inside and out. Simply beautiful and a rare find!
Measures: Saucer: 5.75" Cup: 4.75" handle to opposite rim
Condition: No chips or cracks, mild crazing, stilt marks (as shown) on bottom of saucer
