The yellow color frames the colorful fruit center with style. The luscious grapes,apples and berries are so pretty. This is an expensive teacup but this one has a line of gold paint under the glaze that occurred at the time of manufacture.
We focused on it in the last photo. It is not obvious, but it is there. Yes, the teacup pings beautifully. We have reduced the price substantially because of it. They have also trimmed the outside with gold medallions.
Royal Grafton crafted this bone china featuring an aristocratic handle, detailed colors and a gracious presence. This company was owned by the A B Jones and Sons Ltd at the Grafton Works in Longton, England, one of the Staffordshire Potteries. It began in 1900. This backstamp was issued in 1957 and used until 1961.
The price also includes free US shipping, free gift wrapping and free shipping insurance.
Measurements in inches: The saucer is 5.6" in diameter. The cup is 4" from rim to rim and 2.25" high.
This antique tea cup and saucer is in excellent condition. There are no chips, cracks or crazing. There is a tiny speck of black inside the cup on the apple. It occurred when the piece was made and is under the glaze. We do not sell damaged items. You may buy with confidence.
