It’s an unusual combination – matte black saucers with the cream decorated cups – but it’s one that works really well! The pattern is called ‘Night Club‘ (goodness knows why!) and was designed by Jessie Tait for J&G Meakin in 1959. These coffee cups would originally have formed part of a larger coffee set, but presumably these are all that remain. Sadly there are only five saucers (but six cups!), although to have only broken one saucer over the course of fifty years isn’t doing too badly is it? And the pieces that remain are in decent nick, with only minor signs of wear to the pattern.
A stylish set of 1960s coffee cups for far less than you would pay for a poorly matched modern set.
Dimensions: Cups – 8cm tall x 7cm in diameter; Saucers – 15cm in diameter
