Small Blue and White Tea Cup and Saucer
From the Collection of Mario Buatta
A blue and white English pottery teacup and saucer made in the Regency period circa 1825. We see a delicate overall printed pattern showing small trees. This cup was made for a tea purist. It is just large enough for a few sips of hot tea. If it were bigger, by the time one got to the last sips, the tea would have cooled a bit.
Mario was our very best client for four decades. Blue and white was one of his passions. He loved intense blue.
Dimensions: diameter of saucer 4.5″, diameter of cup 2.75″ x height 2.35″
