VINTAGE RETRO ALFRED MEAKIN CELADON GREEN TRIO - FAIRGROUND SCENE -VERY CHARMING

CELADON GREEN -FAIRGROUND SCENE- ALFRED MEAKIN TRIO
An absolutely charming trio adorned with a series of vintage fairground-based scenes.The sandwich plate (6 3/4 inches) shows folk spectating at the goings-on beneath a marquee in the main scene, with a lone hotdog seller patiently awaiting trade in the background.
The saucer (5 3/4 inches) shows the merriment aboard a colourful merry-go-round, while a balloon seller makes a sale on the outer.
The cup bears 3 different scenes, the front depicting a couple getting high on an old-fashioned swingboat, a yellow helter-skelter, and a punter about to try his luck on a stall.
The reverse shows a hopeful fella attempting to impress his lady by winning her a prize on an iconic strongman game, while the cup's inner shows a small collective scene.
The overall condition of the triois good/very good: there is some wear to the gold banding (moreso to the saucer and less-so to the sandwich plate), a couple of fleabites to the rim of the cup, and minor utensil marks to the plates.
Not mint, clearly, but I would be more than happy to own, display and use this trio myself. I'm sure you agree, a beguiling stylised scene, evocative and brimming with colour and character!
