Here is the first of the red and gold tea cups.  The outside has a simple floral decoration, but there is a lot of detail on the inside of the tea cup.

You can see a pretty pheasant by a fence in a field with trees, flowers.  It's quite colourful and pretty.

It seems that this pattern was also made in blue as well.  I was not able to tell the age of this cup, but it may have been produced between 1936-1948.  E Brain and Co owned this company between the dates of 1903 - 1963.  This is the first piece of china that I have that was produced by Foley.

Here I've pared it with one of my mix-match saucers.  Works pretty good I think!

Royal Albert - Lady Hamilton

Here is the second Red and Gold china saucer.  This one is Royal Albert.  The saucer was produced in the '20s or '30s according to my internet search.

Tuscan - Red and Gold Saucer

Here is the first red and gold plate I will share.  Based on an internet search of the back stamp, this saucer was produced any time after 1947, as this is when they added the phrase "Fine English Bone China" to their back stamp.  The company was later taken over by the Wedgewood Group, and eventually the back stamp was written as "Royal Tuscan" until that brand was no longer used.

Fun Times ... Great Deal?

So we went to one of our favourite Antique Malls, and they were having a 'sale' out in their parking lot.  I picked up a box for $10 ... a bit more that I usually like to spend on china ... however, a peek inside the box promised some treasures I would have fun looking through.

I will feature my new treasures in my next few blog posts.
