Vintage 1930s Colclough China Chintz Cup and Saucer Overall Rose Floral Pattern


Brand Etsy

This is a lovely cup and saucer made by Colclough China of Longton, England. The cup is decorated in an overall chintz pattern featuring roses in tones of red, pink and yellow with green leaves. Colclough was founded in 1897, but operated as Colclough China only from 1937 until 1948. The mark used on the underside of each of the pieces of this set was used from 1939 until 1945, but my feeling is that this set dates to the early part of that range, most likely 1939, before the start of WWII. The cup measures 2 2 1/2 in height with a top diameter of 3 3/8 and the saucer has a diameter of 5 3/4 - the set weighs 8 oz. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks or wear - this is a very nice example. This is a very pretty overall floral chintz pattern - lovely display set!
