Large Breakfast Cup and Saucer
From the Collection of Mario Buatta
This large breakfast cup and saucer is decorated with a bright green vine pattern on clean white porcelain. Made in England circa 1825, it is perfect for a very large cup of morning coffee.
Mario loved the traditions of Regency period England and the big breakfast cup was one of them. Filled with coffee or more likely coffee and hot milk they are hard to find: tea cups were made by the dozens, but breakfast cups were made for couples and typically only made and sold two at a time.
Dimensions: diameter of saucer: 7″ diameter of cup 4.25″ x height 3.5″
