Elegant cups and saucers by John & William Ridgway, with gadrooned edge pattern 2/1383, dating around 1835.
The set is beautiful decorated with hand painted flower panels and gold swirl on a cobalt blue ground.
The set consists of:
5 Coffee cups
1 Tea cup
1 Large slop bowl
1 Cake plate
Two of the coffee cups have a lot of wear to the gold and the pattern, one has a fine short hairline near the top rim hardly noticeable, one coffee cup handle has been repaired, the rest of them just have light rubbing to the gold (some of them still ring well)
The slop bowl is in perfect antique condition and still rings well when tapped.
The saucers and cake plate have very light rubbing to the gilt but no damage, all of them still rings nicely when tapped. There is a small amount of fine kiln dust on the back this is typical of antique porcelain.
The picture has bright areas which are reflections not damage.
