  • Details:  This is a very beautiful bone china cup with matching saucer, it is a dream come true for blue and white lovers who are also teacup collectors.  The border on both the cut as well as the saucer has a band of blue flowers, some large, some medium, and even smaller flowers.  Among them you’ll find leaves, berries and scrolls.   The cup is footed.  The saucer has a swirled border and it’s not flat, has a slight depth to catch drips.  bottom of the cup is stamped: “Made in England”.  The bottom of the saucer has the company logo that reads: ” Ridgway Est 1792, Staffordshire, England.  All colours guaranteed, 2 underglaze 62 and detergent proof ‘Marlborough'”.  (The term “detergent proof” was not used until around 1944).  There are some condition issues with the saucer (underside only), if you’re a Staffordshire collector, this may not be the set for you, if you just want to display it, this shows up very nicely.  A lovely set, ideal for the tea cup collector, for display or for actually drinking tea!

The Ridgway family was one of the important dynasties manufacturing Staffordshire pottery.  From the 1790’s to the late 20th century, there were several family members in the pottery business, all using different versions of the Ridgway, and sometimes Ridgways, name.  William Ridgway and William Ridgway & Sons, and Ridgways of Shelton are a few examples.  They not only had different names, but they changed they frequently, as they became part of, or got of, several partnerships.   The Ridgway name is best known for transferware printed earthenware for the American market, however, they also made bone china pieces starting in 1808. Ridgway Pottery later merged with the Booths & Colclough China Company during the 1940’s, and later became a part of Royal Doulton in the 1960’s.
