|Spode coffee cup, earthenware, London shape Cracked Ice and Prunus c1821|
|Detail of Spode's pattern, transfer printed in blue c1821|
The coffee cup and saucer illustrated here is printed in grey and then hand coloured in blue. It was found in a charity (thrift) shop by Andrew Goff from the USA. He kindly provided me with the photos. And we both love it!
I think the soft colour combination is very elegant and, combined with Spode's very beautifully-proportioned London shape, makes for a gorgeous piece.
