Tittalating Teacup Tuesday


Hello everyone,

Once again I am participating in Teacup Tuesday with Martha and Terry.

Since Halloween is just around the corner I decided to put aside my usual array of pink floral cup to offer something a little more attuned to the ambiance of the season.


Here I have this wonderful Salisbury Bone China cup which boast a lovely pattern of black leaves on both cup and saucer. It also has the leaf design on the inside of the cup. The pattern is called "Othello"


From 1927 to 1949 company was named "Salisbury Crown China Co"
Bone China manufacturer operating at the Salisbury Works, Longton, Stoke-on-Trent.
in 1961 the company was acquired by Thomas Poole and moved to Chadwick Street, Longton.
Earlier In 1952 Thomas Poole acquired Gladstone China company and was reformed to became the Royal Stafford China Co.


This is all I can find out about the company other that they always used a crown for their makers mark - which my cup has - but it doesn't quite match the two examples I found - so not sure of the date it was manufactured in.

Hope you enjoyed my new Wickedly beautiful teacup for Halloween Week.

Hugs,
Penny

Sorry to be so late visiting your tea party. It usually takes me until at least Thursday to visit everyone...sometimes even Friday.

Anyhow, your black and white teacup is really beautiful and unique. There's a real elegance to it.

Thank you for sharing,
Patti
