For this week, since it is Breast Cancer Awareness month I thought I would show something with pink as a dominant color. As a Breast Cancer Survivor for 12 years now I think this is a VERY important month! However, don't forget all the other cancer's that folks suffer with have "causes" that may not be as well "supported." Remember them and support them as well.... (Enough said... I will get off my little soapbox.)
While at a flea market my husband found and later surprised me with this beautiful cup, saucer and plate set. It is from a company I have not heard much about.... Royal Chelsea.
Royal Chelsea was produced by New Chelsea China Co Ltd Longton. Staffordshire Potteries from about 1943 to 1961.
When I checked out the marks on these pieces I learned that the cup and saucer were probably made prior to 1951.... and this is the mark on them.
The plate's mark was newer. It was made sometime after 1951 however they still could have been bought together if the store still has some of the older stock, or perhaps they ordered the plate later on.
I really liked this set and even though Royal Chelsea is a bit new to me I shall be on the lookout for MORE!
