Colclough White Gilt Tea Cup & Saucer 5879 H
White background with heavily decorated floral gilt on this beautiful antique Colclough set. The cup and saucer are in pristine condition.
I understand the backstamp is from H. J. Colclough Longton prior to the establishment of Colclough China Ltd in 1937, and the pattern number 5879 H. I read that the backstamp resembles those used from 1935-1937 by H.J.Colclough.
The cup measures almost 3" high and is 3 1/2" wide. The saucer measures 5 1/2" diameter with a rounded edge.
This is a beautiful set lavishly decorated in gold floral gilt.
