I found this small cup and saucer at a thrift store last week. I don't normally go for cups and saucers, but the cut out lace design on the plate and the carnival glass effect on the inside of the cup caught my eye. There are no chips or cracks. The saucer is 5" diameter, and the cup is 3" diameter (not including handle) x 2" tall. I also like the yellow and gold color rose design, and the leaves have more of an autumn color/feel to them. The edges are gilded, as are the three toes on the cup and the top of the cup handle. There are no markings or labels on either of the items, so I have no idea about when or where they were made. I looked online and it looks similar to some Fred Roberts sets from the 1950s, but I didn't find an exact match. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
