I wouldn’t ordinarily buy a set that was so incomplete, but Susie Cooper pieces are fairly hard to come by these days, and when I do come across them they’re normally selling for prices way beyond my reach! Plus this is such a pretty set that I’m sure someone out there would be happy to add this to their collection of vintage cups and saucers! The set, which dates to sometime between 1932 and 1964, consists of an espresso cup and saucer, a milk jug and sugar bowl, and a larger jug which would also work as a milk jug or creamer, but I suspect might actually be a gravy boat. All of the pieces are in great condition for their age, but the larger jug des have some crazing which is a bit stained (see pics under ‘more’), but it’s not so bad that it’s the first thing you notice – what you notice is the beautiful ‘Kestrel’ shape of the milk jug a the delightful faded green glaze.

A wonderful set from one of the 20th Century’s most respected female designers.

Dimensions: Cup – 6cm tall x 6.5cm in diameter; Saucer – 12cm in diameter; Small jug – 7cm tall x 7cm in diameter; Sugar bowl – 4.5cm tall x 9cm in diameter; Large jug – 8cm tall x 11.5cm in diameter

Price: R180 for the set
