Vintage 1940s Pink Rose Teacups with Saucers - Taylor Smith Taylor circa 1948 - Set of Four
I take comfort that the flowers at least will live on forever... Katharine S. White (1892-1977)
Morning coffee on the patio. A tea party in the garden. Late afternoon rest and relaxation on the front porch. These pretty floral teacups are as beautiful and as easy-going as a summer's day.
Made by Taylor Smith Taylor in West Virginia in March of 1948, this matching set of four cups and saucers contain a single classic cottage rose pattern that features multiple shades of pink and green. Especially lovely for spring and summer dining, they carry hues of the garden that can be easily coordinated with a variety of floral centerpieces making each meal not only beautiful but also memorable.
Feminine without being fussy, the big blooms offer relaxed style and simple beauty - something that is always timeless, always welcoming.
- Matching set of four cups and saucers in hard to find pattern
- Stamped on back with makers mark and production date
- Colors include raspberry, pastel pink, bubble gum pink, evergreen, emerald green, spring green and rust
In gorgeous vintage condition. There are no chips, crazing or cracks on any of the cups or saucers. There is a very small underglaze manufacturing mark on the inside of one teacup that looks to be an errant piece of transferware that got caught on the cup before it was glazed. This mark is very insignificant and does not affect the use of the cup in any way. Please see photos.
Each cup measures 3.75" inches (diameter) x 2.75" inches (height). Each saucer measures 6:" inches in diameter and each cup with saucer weighs 12 oz.
