Minton Saucer, c.1895 and Platinum Reflect Teacup

£200.00 GBP

Produced by Minton in 1895, this saucer is typical of Victorian ceramics. Queen Victoria infamously loved turquoise blue and garlands, resulting in these components becoming the fashion of the day across many art mediums, including ceramics. This piece embraces these elements with intricate detailing and hand-painted floral designs. After Prince Albert’s death, the Queen’s intense period of mourning lasted the rest of her own life, and can be seen in changes to the day’s fashion. As many women showed their support for the Queen, teaware became markedly restrained as an expression of sympathy for the Monarch. However, this saucer reflects the more jovial fashion of the Queen’s youth. 

  

Antique British porcelain is never perfect. During the 1800s, kilns were fired on coal resulting in some firing specks, whilst makers were known for their experimentation which sometimes resulted in technically imperfect results. As a result, each saucer is truly unique and a small piece of history that has survived centuries to find its new home with you. Our pricing reflects the condition and rarity of each piece, and we ask that you embrace the small imperfections that reflect the rich past of British porcelain. This piece has a small amount of noticeable wear and imperfections due to its age, and is a more common piece to have survived.

 

Each teacup and saucer set comes with a handwritten gift card detailing the history of the antique saucer.

Collection Story

The Reflect collection started with our teacup, which brings life back to antique saucers missing their other halves by using platinum and gold gilding to create highly reflective cups. The mirrored cups reflect the patterned saucers, giving them a new lease of life and a place in contemporary homes. 

Each cup is skilfully decorated and then paired with a saucer, all of which have been meticulously sourced from antique dealers across Britain. Reflect has now grown to include matching teapots, milk jugs, sugar bowls and coffee cups, to complete the collection.
