I’m a massive fan of Pontesa, but normally for their beautifully bold retro patterns; these petite teacups and saucers are much more sedate than the Pontesa porcelain that I’ve sold on Mint before – but that doesn’t mean they’re not just as beautiful! The teacups are much smaller than you’d expect them to be – they’re almost the espresso cup of the teacup world (if that makes any sense?), and for the most part are quite plain, but the fantastic leaf pattern embedded into the glaze elevates them from ordinary teacups to something quite special!
A lovely set for drinking herbal teas – your green tea might even taste palatable out of these delightful teacups!
Note: Sadly there’s only a set of five cups & saucers, and there’s a very light stain on the handle of the one teacup (see photos), luckily though it’s not very noticeable.
Dimensions: Teacups – 4.5cm tall x 7cm in diameter; Saucers – 12cm in diameter
