Woods Ivory Ware cup & saucer set
made in England, 1930s

This delightful cup, saucer and cake plate set is Woods Ivory Ware; distinguished by the black and white ‘checkered’ rim. The checked rim, and the abstract flower motif on the pieces are all hand-painted, which means each piece is slightly different.

Woods Ivory Ware [the ‘Ivory’ referring to the pure white of the fine bone china] was made in Burslem in England- where many potteries hail from. The pieces are hand-signed ‘36’ on the back; presumably this was the painter’s number; and the plate is impressed W83 and the cup 126. All pieces are stamped Woods Ivory Ware, England.

The set is in fine vintage condition; ready for tea and cake! It is for sale: $AU55
