Velvet Crush cup & saucer
English fine bone china teacup & saucer with a curl design. Made by hand in Stoke-on-Trent, England. Each piece comes individually presented in a mulberry coloured gift box.
Velvet Crush revives the highly skilled craft of ‘pouncing’ to embellish the fine rims with gold lustre. Applied by hand, the technique produces subtle variations in the gold finish, perfectly enhancing the unique rim shape.
To preserve the gold finish please hand wash and do not microwave.
cup: h 85mm x 90mm diameter (120mm dia with handle)
saucer: h 25mm x 145mm diameter
...whether it's the tinkling sound of bone china cups & saucers the touch to the lips of a finely flared teacup rim or those delicate waxy paper cake cases torn from a little buttery cake...
In creating Material Pleasures Julie Spurgeon has embodied the sensual and tactile qualities of English fine bone china. With its pleats and folds the collection weaves a sensory story and seeks to restore 'quiet material pleasure' to the ritual of tea drinking making tea-time loved and special again. There is nothing like drinking tea from the finely flared rim of a bone china cup!
