Click Image for Gallery
A lovely and petite fine bone china demitasse cup and saucer set by Paragon China in its Corinthian pattern, dating to the 1930s, and offered here in green. The inner panel of the teacup displays a wide band of a classic Roman pattern of urns and acanthus leaves in tan and brown, set against a green background. This band is then bordered by an alternating diamond and oval pattern of brown and goldenrod, all against a creamy white china form. The same lovely pattern is found on the saucer, with the centerpiece of both pieces providing a lovely floral bouquet of various colors, with flowers medium and small.
This demitasse tea cup with its high loop handle feels elegant and quite proper, with the handle base allowing the tea connoisseur to enjoy a perfect middle-finger fit while enjoying the tea of choice.
Teacup measures approx. 2-1/4 inch high to the rim, with a handle height of 2-3/4 inch and a rim diameter of 3-1/8 inch. The saucer measures approx. 4-5/8 inch in diameter.
Both pieces are marked Paragon - By Appointment - Made In England - Regd - Corinthian to match the mark used from 1932-1939.
I received my mugs today and I could not be happier. Packaged with great care, lovely card to say thank you, and all intact. They are better than expected, with the size I really wanted, thinner rim for sipping coffee and hot chocolate. I really have a thing for pottery mugs and these are great quality and wonderful drip glaze. Flashback Alley owner Holly is wonderful to work with, great communication, extra service all along. Thank you again! I love them.
Seller was very nice and helped me through the registration and purchase process. Love the product and arrived quickly. Thank you!
The packages of Royal Doulton tea cups and dinner plates arrived in perfect condition. I could not be happier with the merchandise. Holly is personable and cares about the quality of the product as well as the packaging. Holly is a pleasure to work with and I will be shopping at Flashback Alley in the future. I'm so glad I found Flashback Alley!
