Offered is this elegant set of FOUR fine porcelain china demitasse cups and saucers made in England by Royal Crown Derby. The pattern is Old Imari, no. The date code reads XLIII, which we dont know how to translate. However, we believe this set dates to the last part of the 20. This set depicts the traditional Imari decorating style, with patterns of cobalt and gold on a smooth white blank. Accent colors are Chinese-red with a touch of emerald-green. Gold trim decorates the handles, base and rims of the cups. Thin gold bands outline the white borders that separate the rectangular patterns on the top half of the cups. Gold decorates the rim and verge of the saucers. Gold bands also outline the white borders on the saucers. The saucers measure 4.5 inches in diameter (11.5 cm). The cups stand a bit over 2.25 inches high (5.8 cm) and measure 2 3/8 inches in diameter (6 cm). They will hold 4 ounces of espresso or other strong after-dinner coffee. These pieces are in excellent used condition with no damage that we have observed. Gold trim in excellent condition. In a separate listing, we will be offering a set of four of these demitasse cups and saucers. The item will be insured.
