The Mario Buatta Collection A Set of 3 Cups & Saucers Hand-Painted FBB Worcester


Mario loved unexpected combinations of beautiful colors. This chinoiserie pattern has just that: the Imari colors of cobalt blue and iron red, but also exquisite touches of pink, turquoise, and green. This pattern was one that we would always set aside for Mario. He would purchase it whether we found a few pieces or were lucky enough to find an entire dinner set.
Because Mario loved this pattern, we are adding this set of three cups and saucers to the Mario Buatta Collection, although they came from a New England collection and not Mario’s estate.

When we purchased this set, we also purchased a set of four cups and saucers in another pattern that Mario often bought from Bardith.

Dimensions: Diameter of the saucer 5.75″ height of the cup 2.5.”

Condition: Excellent
