This porcelain tea cup and saucer was produced around 1870 in England. There are two impressed crosses and printed entwined circles. There are no other identifying marks and we cannot specify the manufacturer. The workmanship is similar to some of Minton’s work, Brownfields and George Jones but we don’t believe it was from these companies. The saucer is 5 3/8 inches and the cup is 2 1/2 inches high. The porcelain is fine, white bone china. The decorations have an Asian influence but the designs are from the aesthetic movement. The decoration is high quality, using raised enamels and the most minute hand gilding. The panels of gold overlay cobalt blue ground. This is no ordinary cup and saucer. Condition: Excellent
