White Star Line, 1st Class cup & saucer in the turquoise wisteria pattern especially chosen for use on board the 'Olympic' & 'Titanic', manufactured by Stoniers of Liverpool.
These cups and saucers were used for coffee, demitasse.
a rare 'matched' pair, both sporting the same date of 1905.
Similar examples of this pattern and shape have been recovered from the Titanic wreck site.
This example in used but good condition, gold rim is intact and almost like new, Some overall ware, a couple of tiny flea bite nibbles to the rim which are under the glass and would of happened during manufacturing, hardly noticeable and mentioned only for total accuracy.
Overall good order as you would expect from being 100+ odd years old and used within a ship on the atlantic run.
About as good an example as you will find on the open market.
No chips, no cracks, no restoration.
A truely fine example.
Saucer is just over 5" across.
Cup 2" tall
