Now is the time to enhance your ocean-liner collection with this beautiful bone-china White Star Line demi-tasse cup and saucer. Just think of the craftsmanship in this set. Hand made china that was glazed, fired, had brown decals applied by hand, fired, gold leafed, hand-painted flag added, turquoise “tongues” applied (again by hand), then fired again! Making china like this today would cost a mint! The cup is dated 1903, while the saucer is by Brownfields and is dated 1897! Excellent condition with no loss to the gold leaf. Some slight utensil marks on the saucer but his does not detract.
