Description:
English creamware miniature or toy teacup and saucer decorated in iron red and blackish-brown. The black-banded rim is over a band of fern-like design in a herringbone shape over a narrow black band. There is a group of four small dots in a diamond shape on each base. This cup and saucer are probably part of a set with the pitcher, HD 78.121, also given by the same donor. These pieces could have been made by Josiah Wedgwood but are unmarked.
