Extra Large Joke Cup & Saucer
Clarice Cliff Royal Staffordshire
For consideration is this lovely, vintage oversized joke cup and saucer depicting a a basket of cut flowers. It's one of the prettiest floral patterns.
Joke cups are very hard to come by as they are so oversized. 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!
Saucer measures 6 1/2 and Cup is 5 1/2" across
