Great Exhibition Chocolate Cup and Saucer

£295.00
  • Description

    A limited edition of 250.

    The design of this Limited Edition English fine bone china Chocolate Cup and Saucer is inspired by an exquisite pattern taken from a dessert stand which formed part of a Minton service purchased by Queen Victoria at the great Exhibition on 1851.

    The vogue for drinking chocolate reached Great Britain in the mid-17th Century, and chocolate houses started to appear alongside the coffee houses which catered for the middle classes of the time. As cocoa grinding techniques improved during the 18th Century, the craze for drinking tea, coffee and chocolate fuelled the demand for porcelain and ceramic tea sets, chocolate cups/pots and coffee mugs.

    Made by hand in Stoke-on-Trent using traditional methods unchanged for over 250 years, and finished by hand using 22 carat gold. English fine bone china is highly regarded around the world for its whiteness, fineness, delicacy, and durability.

    13 x 16 x 16 cm.

    Saucer 15cm.

    Bespoke box 14 x 21 x 20 cm.
