Tea Cup Tuesday

It is time for Tea Cup Tuesday again.  They seem to come faster and faster!

This week I have another tea cup and saucer set that I bought from the flea market a couple of weeks ago.  This set is from Salisbury Crown China.  I am not showing the mark on the bottom of the plate because I couldn't get a good picture of it.


I don't know a whole lot about this china company either.  But after a bit of on line research I learned this much about the company:

Salisbury Crown China was a firm based in Longton, Staffordshire founded in 1927 and 
taken over by Thomas Poole of Longton in 1961.
 

The design is lovely Pansies!.   Pansies are one of my favorite flowers so am always drawn to them.
It appears to be partially hand painted over perhaps a transfer pattern.  I am not expert enough to know for sure.  




I hope you like this weeks choice.
