Information
The Staffordshire pottery, H.J. Colclough from Longton,  first used the prefix 'Royal' when the company won official Royal approval in 1913.  The name continued to be used when Colclough became one of the companies under the umbrella of Ridgway Potteries Ltd.

Here we have a Tennis Set comprised of a tea cup and a plate with an indentation to support the cup. This set allowed you to enjoy your dainty sandwich or fancy cake, complete with a cup of tea, and only need the one hand to support it rather than juggling with two separate crockery items!  A clever idea indeed!

Decorated with a beautiful floral design of Cornflowers with gilding to the handle and rims.

Approximate dimensions :  Footed Cup    2.5" /  6.5cm high
                                           Plate             8.75" / 22cm  x  8" / 20.5cm 

Some rubbing to the gilding.

Backstamp.   Faint pattern number - 7513.

Two most attractive pieces which are at least 70 years old.

All our items are pre-owned and vintage and may therefore show signs of use and age and will not be dishwasher proof.
