Vintage 12 piece Cup and Saucer Set - Palissy Red Maple
Fantastic complete set of six cups and saucers in the green version of the Red Maple design by Palissy. They are also in the original box. The probable manufacturing date for this set is early 1950s. Palissy is often difficult to date with a lot of deliberate misleads but this would chime well with what the previous owner told me as he thought they had been in his family for at least 50 years. Bar some crazing to each item the general condition is excellent. I haven't found any chips or cracks and the previous owner tells me the box was rarely opened let alone used. The box itself is faded and cracked at the corners but internally it's fine with all slots in place and it holds the cups and saucers very securely.
Cup: 7.5cm (h) x 6.5cm (8.5cm with handle)
