Retro English Tea Set

R250.00

I really, really love the pattern’s on today’s retro tea set – it has such a modern feel to it, but at the same time there’s no mistaking today’s Alfred Meakin coffee set for a contemporary design –  with those great handles, stark angles and wonderful geometric pattern, it’s obvious that this is a retro set of china! The maker’s mark was first used in 1945, but I suspect that this set dates a bit later than that – possibly the early 1960s? Sadly there are only four cups and saucers, and the teapot has some crazing which seems to go through to the inside of the pot, but we’ve tested it out and it holds water just fine! Other than that, and some minor wear to that fantastic retro pattern, and this English tea set is in pretty great nick!

Dimensions: Teapot – 15cm tall x 12.5cm in diameter; Milk jug – 9cm tall x 9cm in diameter; Sugar bowl – 6cm tall x 11cm in diameter; Cups – 7.5cm tall x 7cm in diameter. Saucers – 14cm in diameter

Unfortunately this item is too large for one of our courier packets, so will need to be boxed. To save on shipping costs, we’re happy to combine other items at no additional courier fee
