Alfred Meakin Teacups

R140.00

These are the last of the Alfred Meakin ‘Valencia’ dinner service that we’ve had for sale over the past week or two. I like the teacups because they’re nice and practical (you’d probably get more use out of them than the gravy boat or teapot), but they’re obviously just as handsome with that wonderful retro pattern! Sadly there’s a fleabitee chip along the rim of the one cup, and some minor stained crazing on another cup (not too serious at all), but we’ve given it a lick of varnish* so it shouldn’t stain, and should still be hygeinic to use.

* I know it sounds strange to varnish crockery, but if you paint a drop of clear nail varnish on a small chip (it must be small) it acts as a glaze of sorts and seals the chip, preventing water/dirt from getting into the porcelain/pottery and stopping any staining.

Dimensions: Each teacup measures 7.5cm tall x 7.5cm in diameter
