This is a nice vintage cup made in Burslem, Staffordshire, England. Backstamp is in gold. It is dated 1882-1964 +. The glaze finish and crisp colors are outstanding. When tapped it rings like crystal glass. It is made of Bone China with the crown marking of England. The gold trimming is in wonderful condition with only very little minor wear that is not noticeable, and could be considered in mint condition. The ribbed cup has the yellow & white lily-of-the-valley flowers. Green leaves, and pink with a shaded grey background. The top has a thick gold scalloped edge, with broad band of gold on the handle half way down. The inside is a pretty light lavender color. No scratches, chips, cracks, repairs or discoloration.
Measurements: The cup is 3 1/4" across the top not including the handle x 2 1/2" high.
Actual weight before packing is 3.2 oz. It will ship at 1 lb.
I always use a new or good box plus plenty of bubble wrap, peanuts, and 2" packing tape. In my nearly 7 years of shipping I have not had a broken piece yet. But, Most of the handling depends on the postal carrier. I place fragile labels on the box to notify the carrier of the contents.
