This is a beautiful tea cup and saucer / cake plate set, made by Foley Bone China, Staffordshire, England circa mid 1950’s.
A fantastic design by Maureen Tanner, ‘April’ inspired by her travels around Italy after studying at the Royal College of Art. Made of quality bone china / porcelain and decorated with transfer prints of a girl / lady holding a mirror, surrounded by motifs of flowers and leaves, a delightful illustration picked out in yellow and pink.
So reminiscent of the 1950’s mid century era, very stylish and perfect as practical vintage tableware or for display.
Would make a great addition to any collection of English bone china / porcelain and would complement any retro, vintage, 1950’s, mid century, kitsch or contemporary interior.
In excellent condition, no marks, chips or crazing.
The plate measures 22 x 22 x 1.5cm / 8.75 x 8.75 x 0.5in.
The cup measures 6.5 x 10 x 8.5cm / 2.75 x 4 x 3.5in.
Both marked to the base ‘April designed by Maureen Tanner Foley Bone China Made in England’.
