I think that this set of 1950’s J&G Meakin coffee cups and saucers is just delightful! I love the colour, and that gold edging is a lovely touch – as is the scalloped shape – it gives it a very feminine feel. One or two of the saucers have some stained crazing, and there are some quite obvious marks on the inside of one of the cups, but for its age I think it’s doing quite well.

A very attractive set that would make somebody a wonderful house-warming or Christmas present.

Dimensions: Cups – 6cm tall x 6.5cm in diameter; Saucers – 12.5cm in diameter

Price: R180 for the set
