EARLY BLUE & WHITE SPONGEWARE CUP & SAUCER~VERY NICE
- Source: eBay
A beautiful spongeware set, this cup and saucer are a gorgeous pair with dark blue and white on both inside, outside, and on both sides of the saucer. The saucer measures 6" from rim to rim and has interesting raised line detail on back (see pictures). The cup stands 3" tall and has a 3 1/2" opening for drinking. There are no markings on either piece but I have been told that it might be English. Both pieces are in excellent condition with no cracks or chips of any kind. There is, however, crazing on both pieces and that is not unusual for a set that may be 150 years old. Watch for future listings of additional pieces.
