This tea cup and saucer was produced in England around 1895. There are no identifying marks in order to attribute this cup and saucer to a particular factory. The saucer has a diameter of 5 1/2 inches and is 1 1/4 inches deep. The cup is 2 1/4 inches high. The porcelain is light weight with a slightly grayish tinge. It is completely hand painted in a folk art motif with stylized flowers. The use of purple luster paint in the decoration gives this cup and saucer desirability among collectors of early English porcelains. There is light crazing in the glaze on the saucer. It is in excellent condition.
