Vintage Tea Cup Saucer Set Asian Design Birds Floral Adderley
This pretty tea cup & saucer set features an Asian themed design, with colorful birds sitting above pink 7 yellow flowers and a gilded fan design around the rim. It is also gilded around the inside rim, on the foot, and on the handle of the cup. It looks similar to the "Indian Tree" design which was quite popular in England from the 1920s - 1950s. It is marked "Adderley Bone China, Lawley England" with a crown & "1789" above. The set was most likely produced after 1947 (when the company merged with Ridgway) until sometime in the 1960s. It is in very good condition, with no chips or cracks and minimal crazing/paint loss.
