Product Description

This tea-cup saucer was brought up from the wreck of the “Mt. Everest of ship diving,” the ss Andrea Doria.  In the famous “chinoise” (or Chinese) pattern.  Measures about 4.75″ across.  With some staining from its time on the bottom of the North Atlantic, the saucer has a chip out of the rim and a small hairline that emanates from it, but other than that, it is in extremely good condition considering what it went through on July 25-26, 1956!

This pattern of china was known to be used in the on board afternoon tea service.
