Melba Teacup, Flower Handle, Lilac Time, Octagonal Tea Cup, Antique Tea Cup and Saucer
This very sought after hand painted, octagonal 1932 flower-handled cup with saucer is fabulous! It is stamped “Lilac Time” along with the green crown “Melba Bone China – Guaranteed – Made in England back stamp.
Registry No. 778510 and 778351 dated to 1932 according to the English Registry of numbers. It is very delicate and hand painted with lilacs, yellow and pink flowers, and green leaves against a white background. Edges are green and cup handle is the darling pink flower.
The cup is 2 3/4” tall and 3 1/4” across. The saucer is 5 1/4” across. It is in excellent condition and there is no damage that I can see. This was not used, but purely decorative in a collector’s curio cabinet.
This pretty set is in excellent vintage condition. Clean as a whistle on the inside of the cup and all gilt work is intact and shiny. Beautiful for every day use or as a pretty display piece, this set will give years of pleasure.
Made in England. Backstamp as pictured.
