Product description

Victorian antique ornamental china cup and saucer with water mill design
 
An appealing late Victorian antique ornamental china cup and saucer, broadly octagonal in shape, finished in shiny white glaze with gilt decoration and coloured transfer depictions of a water mill. The saucer measures approximately 11.1cm (4.35in) across, whilst the cup stands approximately 5.8cm (2.3in) tall; neither has any identifying marks.
 
The saucer has a chip (about 0.8 x 0.4cm / 0.3 x 0.15in) to the underside edge (just visible from the top), with a short crack (about 0.9cm / 0.35in to the underside, shorter to the top) radiating from it, together with a couple of tiny nibbles; the upper part of the cup handle has a hairline crack (with adjacent nibbling) near its juncture with the body of the cup. The transfer design on the saucer is fairly worn (less so on the cup), and there is considerable wear to the gilt of both pieces, together with some scratching / abrasion and slight marking to the glazed surfaces, marking to the unglazed feet, and various manufacturing irregularities including spots, small marks and small lumps in the glaze. Although obviously unsuitable for actual practical use as a cup and saucer, the piece nonetheless displays nicely, and would make a pleasing addition to a Victorian-style decorative scheme, or to a display cabinet or collection of similar items.
