This beautiful Duchess cup and saucer duo are decorated with sprays of violets on a pure white background. 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.
There are some similarities to two other of their patterns, 'Violets 921' and '346.'
