    I found this tea cup last week and almost didn’t buy it because it looked too perfect. There are no chips, cracks, or loss of paint. It must have been sitting untouched in a cupboard for many decades. The registration mark is a bit hard to read but I believe it has the letter D, dating it to 1878. The shape is a bit unusual: it is square. The decoration could be a combination of transfer print and hand-painted; I am not sure about this.

    Thanks for looking:)

      My pleasure I really do like it as it's unusual & I seem to go for things that are unusual I suppose a bit like me. Why be a clone like most people are not my style
