Mintons eloise pattern no. 702577 hand painted fine bone china. Very fine hand painting over transfer on a pale yellow broad border with jewel like colors. The border and motifs inside the teacup are all hand painted and the deco shaped teacup handle is beautifully outlined in honey yellow as are the rims. The pattern is leaning to the art nouveau period whilst the teacup handle is very art deco in style. This is not a surprise when you consider that the uk registration no. 702577 and the us patent t. 70776 were made on 3rd august 1926. There is an impressed cypher on the underside for the year 1929 when this china was manufactured. Each place setting consists of a dinner plate, a salad plate, a bread and butter plate, a saucer and a teacup. All pieces are used but in superior condition. I’m crazy about rescuing vintage housewares i love to locate and then pass on these treasures to someone who will love and value them. I hope that’s you. Please take your time to review the photos closely as they are part of the item’s description; i do my best to ensure that the pictures show all aspects of the items, good and not so good, so that any noticeable flaws are visible. Pictures might not be the best judge of size when it comes to some items. For this reason, i include written measurements in the descriptions. I try to present colors as accurately as we can, but keep in mind that colors may show up differently on different screens and devices. Each item i list is meticulously cleaned with the appropriate method relevant to each vintage piece. I live in sarasota, fl.
