Johnson Bros espresso cups and saucers

How lovely is this set of vintage Johnson Bros espresso cups and saucers? I know it’s very simple, but I love the ridged pattern and the clean white glaze. The one cup has some peculiar stains, and there’s a manufacturing defect on the handle (it looks like the handle’s cracked, but it’s not), but the rest of the set is in excellent condition!

A wonderful gift for anyone who’s serious about their coffee – Justin has a collection of espresso cups that sit on top of his coffee machine and he gets great pleasure deciding which cup to use every morning!

Dimensions: Cups – 6cm tall x 6cm in diameter; Saucers – 11.5cm in diameter

Price: R150 for the set
