This is a beautiful example of bone china from one of the oldest porcelain companies still in existence. In very good pre-owned condition, the cup and saucer have no chips, cracks, or repairs. All paintwork is in good condition considering the age of the item. Slight signs of wear appear which are indicative to use, primarily on the gilt rim of the cup. Additionally, the underside of the cup is slightly stained.
