These types of sets were often commissioned from high class retailers like Aspreys through a metal ware producer like Hukin and Heath, then Spode created the ceramic portion of the item. The cup is approximately 2 tall and the saucer is approximately 3-1/8 across. The black cat has glass eyes.
I have looked closely and can find no chips, fleabites, cracks, crazing, stains or other defect. Since the cats were handpainted, there are some areas that the paint isnt perfect where attached to the cup. Smoke free and pet free home.
