  • Details:

    Beautiful peafowl spongeware done on pearlware.  Our two saucers are deep. They were made to be used with a handleless teacup.  Pour your tea into the saucer and drink it from there.  This method helped cool the tea.

    Our larger saucer has a diameter of 5 7/8" and stands about 1 1/4" tall.  Impressed 22 on the bottom, quite worn down.  There is discoloration and some age crackle on the  bottom, but nowhere else.  The smaller saucer is a dainty 4" diameter and stands about 15/16" tall.  There is a tiny mark on the bottom which may have been a signature character, or it may be a glaze splotch done in its making.  Hard to tell. A very few, small spots of age discolor, mild and vague.  Two lovely early saucers filled with vim and vigor. They display beautifully.
