    I picked up this sweet tea cup and saucer from my favourite market stall last week. It is in the Broseley pattern and made in England, but was made around the time that English potters were trying to copy the Chinese porcelain so put a pretend seal on the base! I have not identified this mark, but have found out that potteries such Miles Mason and Copeland used the square seal mark. I have a few of this pattern cup and saucers, but this is the only one with a back stamp. I think it probably dating to 1825-35, looking at the shape of the cup and handle. (Bit of a guess!).

      It's amazing the beautiful handles survived all these years. It's also interesting that the saucers were deeper, like a shallow bowl. Lovely!

      I believe a deeper saucer with no indentation for the cup is a sign of an older cup and saucer. I think it was so they could drink out of the saucer, though I don’t know how true that is!
    5. Watchsearcher Watchsearcher, 3 years ago
      Yes, I've read that it was the norm to tip the cup to pour the drink into the saucer, then to pick the saucer up and drink from it. Is that the same thing you had heard?
      Strange, but they must have had a reason. Was there some food such as bread in the saucer that they were pouring the drink onto?
