Peach Tea Cup & Saucer • Hand Painted Eggshell
Vintage delicate eggshell peach porcelain teacup and matching saucer, hand painted and decorated with a repeating moriage pattern of daisies, chrysanthemums and tiny blue flowers. The artist has hand-signed the bottoms of both pieces. Gracefully shaped atop a gently flared cup, the center of the peachy-pink cup is pearlized white. A scrolled white handle with gold trim finishes this daily, collectible set.
CONDITION: Good vintage condition: no cracks or discolorations. There is a fleabite chip on the rim of the side (see photo close-ups). The colors are so crisp, which probably means that this has never gone in a dishwasher. Hand wash if you want to ensure that the design never fades.
DIMENSIONS: Saucer 5 1/4″ diameter x 2″ tall (cup on saucer); holds 3 ounces
TIP: Fill a variety of pretty teacups with flowers, candy or a vintage hankie, add a place card, and you have the perfect party favor for a bridal shower or Sweet 16 party. (See last photo close-up.)
This teacup and saucer was part of a single collection, probably gathered over years, and acquired by KatesChockfullAttic at an estate sale. You can find more collectible teacups and saucers in ESTATE COLLECTIONS.
