Creamware Teacup And Saucer
With textural exuberance tempered by quiet color, creamware has created exquisite table settings for centuries. Developed in the mid-1700s by English potters as an alternative to patterned porcelain from China, it became an instant sensation. The first creamware was a breakfast set given by English industrialist Josiah Wedgwood to Queen Charlotte, who was so smitten with the delectable china that she allowed him to call it queensware.. Today's collection boasts beaded rims and lacy pierced borders that provide a stunning frame for memorable salads, entrees, or desserts. The level of craftsmanship is superb: openwork details are individually cut with simple metal tools, and intertwined handles are delicately shaped by hand. The soft cream color works beautifully with all kinds of solid and patterned table linens. This piece, like many of the antique originals in Colonial Williamsburg's collections, is made in Leeds, England, by Hartley Greens & Co., famous since 1770 for exquisite creamware. Food safe. Please hand wash.
