Sweet and striking little teacup and saucer featuring beautiful Art Deco style butterflies. Their design is pleasingly abstracted in green, yellow, and orange. There are orange and yellow flowers too, and each piece is trimmed in rich gold.
This tea cup and saucer is marked with "Gladstone Bone China, Made in England" with a crown which was the mark of the George Proctor & Co. Potteries of Longton in North Staffordshire, England. They operated from 1891 to 1970. This example would date from the fifties by the mark.
CONDITION: This is lovely piece of Staffordshire bone china is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, or nicks. There is very fine crackling in the glaze of the saucer, but it appears to just be where the glaze is a little thicker. This is a wonderful addition to your teacup collection.
SIZE: The cup is 2 3/4 inches tall, and the saucer is 5 1/4 inches wide.
