Two Pink Lustre Tea Cups & Saucers in Strawberry Pattern
From the Collection of Mario Buatta
Two antique pink lustreware teacups and saucers. These cups and saucers feature a gorgeous, feminine strawberry pattern. Made in England they date from ca. 1830. The red strawberries have brick red seeds and green leaves. They grow on curvy stems with multiple delicate curlicue tendrils. The rims of the cup and saucer have narrow pink lustre bands which border the strawberry pattern.
