Gold, rust, and cobalt are colors inspired by the classic Imari palette. Imari ware came from Japan was highly copied in the west. This is a typical anglicized version with gold scrolls and rim, rusty orange flowers, and cobalt blue under glaze.
This cup and saucer were made by Colclough Potteries in the 1940s. Colclough was founded in the 1890s and were proud makers of affordable but delicate bone china. The mark on the bottom was initially used in 1939, and a newer mark was introduced in 1945, so likely this cup was made in the first part of the forties.
CONDITION: Excellent with no nicks, chips, cracks or scratches. The color is vibrant and fresh.
SIZE: The cup is 2 3/4 inches tall and the saucer is 5 1/2 inches wide.
