Vintage Universal Ballerina Moss Rose Teacups circa 1950s - Set of Two
BALLERINA LENDS ITSELF - BLENDS ITSELF - TO REFLECT YOUR WAY OF LIFE... (FROM A 1950'S UNIVERSAL BALLERINA ADVERTISEMENT)
In the early 1950s, Universal Pottery introduced their Ballerina line - a graceful, elegant dishware collection that came in a variety of designer solids and florals so that buyers could mix and match pieces with ease and confidence.
Made in Cambridge, Ohio the Ballerinas were a beautiful addition to the kitchen, offering fade-proof designs thanks to their permacal glazing. This set of two matching teacups and saucers features the Moss Rose pattern with an interesting back shadow effect and a complementary blend of pink, green and grey colors. The Moss Rose pattern came in two different types of design - one with a silver rim and the other without. These two matching teacups and saucers each feature the silver rim style.
- Colors include ballet pink, evergreen, salmon, raspberry, spring green and pale grey
- Matching set of two
- Four pieces total (two cups and two saucers)
