These items were produced by A.T. Finney & Sons working out of the Duchess China Works, Longton - one of the Staffordshire potteries.
Their trade name of 'Duchess' was used from the start of business around 1947.
Here with have four simply beautiful Duos decorated with posies of flowers on a pure white ground. The flowers appear on the saucers and to both the inside and outside of the cups.
Richly gilded to rims, edges and handles.
Under one of the footed cups is a tiny depression no doubt caused during the production process and is mentioned for completeness.
In first class vintage condition.
Approximate dimensions : Footed Cup x 4 2.75" / 7cm high Saucer x 4 5.5" / 14cm
I believe the flowers are Pansies, Poppies, Lilies and Carnations - but I may be wrong !
These stunning items would make either a fabulous display or a gift.
