Vinatge Floral Teacups with Gold Filigree - Set of Two circa 1940s
She lives in a world of her own... Tennessee Williams
Made by Canonsburg Pottery, in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania this pair of two vintage teacups features a beautiful arrangement of golden filigree on the exterior and a colorful floral bouquet on the interior. Like two pretty gifts wrapped up in one, these cups are a visual delight from all angles.
Highly detailed, the gold lacy filigree design was used by numerous American potteries during the 20th century including Homer Laughlin, Royal and WS George, so it is no stranger to a pretty dish. Likewise, the floral transferware was also a common design used by the decorating studios of several well-known dishware manufacturers. But what makes this pattern different when it comes to Canonsburg, is their complementary combination of both designs in one unique arrangement.
Canonsburg Pottery operated just south of Pittsburgh from the early 1900s to the late 1970s. Although unmarked, most likely these cups were made around the 1940s, and feature a menagerie of shades that look just gorgeous with other cottage florals and colors.
