I’m fascinated by today’s teacups and saucers – they have a maker’s mark on their base which reads ‘Made in China’, with a logo made up of two peacocks facing each other. I’m interested in the maker’s mark because I can tell by the style of the logo that this isn’t the über cheap Chinese crockery you would see for sale today, although at the same time, the cups aren’t quite as fine as what you’d expect from English bone china. I’ve had a bit of a hunt online and people seem to think that they date to the 1960s, although no one has any solid information to provide, so I’m no wiser really! But still, I think it’s a very sweet set for the money – I love how twee the pattern is – super grannified, but in a really good way!
