Antique Minton Teacup Duo with Turquoise Enamel

Regular price £135.00 £0.00 Unit price per

This teacup duo is truly a work of art: what looks like a simple design is actually so detailed and well executed. The turquoise enamelled band is set off by etched gilt detail in cabochon shapes around both the cup and saucer. Additional enamelling in the form of white dots add an interesting lift. Differing gilt designs at the rim and below the banding make for such a striking look. Not only that, but a great deal of skill was necessary to successfully create such a design. Both the cup and saucer are unmarked.

Maker: Minton

Age: Circa 1854-1860
Condition: Excellent; no chips, cracks or crazing. No restoration. Gilt and pattern are in excellent condition. Note a couple of tiny air bubbles seen on the occasional enamelled dot.
