A beautiful ROYAL STAFFORD Footed Scalloped CUP & SAUCER Deep Rich YELLOW with Gold Ferns & Scrollwork , Circa 1940-1960's from Longton, Staffordshire, England
Thomas Poole started his bone china pottery at Cobden Works, Cooke Street, Longton, Staffordshire, UK in 1880 using Royal Stafford China as his tradename. It was renamed Thomas Poole, Ltd. in 1925 and in 1948 merged with Gladstone China, Ltd. to form Royal Stafford China, Ltd. Their marks or variations of their marks continued to be used. This superb quality china has color that is bright and vivid on the high white background. This is painted on a blank of fine white bone china with gold trim on the edges. The cup and saucer are tied together by the use of the same solid yellow and gold fern leaf pattern on both. The cup has several gold bands on the outside and a large gold band on the foot. The gold on the handle is an interesting display of 5 horseshoes with 3 dots inside each one.
While this cup & saucer set is classified as used, there are no chips, nicks, rubbings, hairlines, or repairs to this stunning set. We can find no rubbing or wear on the gold. There appears to be absolutely no wear to the vivid color and no crazing. ... read more
