PURPLE POLYCHROME TRANSFER WARE STAFFORDSHIRE

SOUP CUP & SAUCER

Ridgways Oriental

circa 1891

For consideration is this outstanding and rare polychromed purple transferware bouillion soup cup & saucer set by Ridgways in the Oriental pattern. This is a very hard to locate piece and in a hard to find color, especially with the hand painted hues of gold, rusty red and green. An Eastern scene is depicted inside the cup and on the face of the saucer. The border around the saucer and outside of the cup is of roses.

Measures: appx 6" handle to handle of cup x appx 2" tall Saucer is 6.25"

Condition: Only some crazing and overall glaze darkening, commensurate to age. No chips or cracks. One handle of one of the soups has a firing crack, nothing significant

Marked: Beehive stamp as shown above reading ORIENTAL Ridgways England
