Stunning Antique Purple Transfer Tea Bowl and Saucer made between 1845-1853 by J. Heath of Staffordshire, England. A beautifully detailed transfer pattern featuring two horse riders in front of a castle. Inside the cup, amid the floral garlands and lacy patterns, is a center scene of the same scene.
What a beautiful decorative cup and saucer, from a time when tea was precious, and tea cups came without handles. In that rare to find purple lavender color. There is an under rim chip on the saucer. A treasure to add to your collection of antique French and English country transfer ware from the 19th century.
