Continental espresso cups & saucers

I don’t think that these Continental espresso cups have any real age to them – the maker’s mark looks way too modern, and the cups are chunkier than any vintage Continental cups that I’ve come across – but it’s still a very sweet set! The thing that really appealed to me was the pattern on the saucers. It reminds me of a more simplistic version of Susie Cooper’s ‘Wedding Band’. Obviously it’s nowhere near as refined a design, but it’s still very attractive!

Dimensions: Cups – 5cm tall x 6cm in diameter; Saucers – 12cm in diameter

Price: R110 for the set
