This is a lovely and rare vintage set of traditional Torquay pottery, made by Dartmouth Potteries of red Devon clay, done in the faience style of hand painted color in pigments The design is a hand painted sailboat, and this design was often sold as a tourist souvenir in Norfolk. This example of cottageware is simply marked on the bottom with "Dartmouth Pottery, Hand Made in England".
I personally love Torquay pottery and have owned this set for a very long time, over thirty years, and it was vintage when I bought it in England.
CONDITION: Good to very good. There is some chipping to the rim of the teacup - it's been there as long as I have owned it. There is also scuffing on the surface from use, but that also predates me as I have only ever displayed this set, never used it.
SIZE: Cup is 2 3/4 inches tall and the plate is 6 inches wide.
