    I picked up this elegant cup, saucer and plate this morning. It has no marking on it, but the shape seems to suggest it's early Victorian, and according to my "Compendium of British Cups" by Michael Berthoud, the handle is the rustic bean shape, and I can see the bean shape in the handle! It has a simple hand painted decoration in gold. I do wish there are more books on the subject of cups and saucers. The Compendium is great, but most of the pictures are black and white, and it's cups only, no saucers. I've a couple of more books, but they are pretty old and expensive to get hold of.
