Antique Sugar Bowl and Jug Set - Diamond China - B.P. Co Ltd

This listing is primarily for the sugar bowl, an ivory bone china bowl with hand decorated transfer print and gold detailing. It is from the Diamond China range by Blyth Porcelain Co Ltd of Longton. It comes with a small milk jug or creamer, in the same pattern but with an older version of the mark, dating from between 1905 and 1913. The bowl is very good condition indeed with only a little age related wear. The jug however has suffered a breakage and been repaired (see photo).  To be fair, the break was clean and while the repair could be a little neater it looks to be quite old and the jug kept in use, so obviously a well loved piece. With great care it could be restored but from the outside the repair doesn't really show as the cracks are within the pattern.

Bowl: 9cm x 5cm
Jug: 8cm x 8cm
