This is a fine Georgian period English tea cup and saucer dish, one of a pair, unmarked, but probably Hilditch ca. 1825. The pedestal cup, with London bone china style handle, is decorated with a simple scrolling border and stylized leaves in shades of aqua and puce; the matching saucer is deeply dished, which is typical of the period. Condition: Cup: excellent, with several tiny glaze chips below handle; saucer: some age appropriate crackling to glaze. Measurements: tea cup: 4 _ in., handle to lip and 2 5/8 in. high. Saucer: 5 5/8 in. diam. and 1 _ in. high.
