Description

Tea and coffee cups are amongst the most collectable of all ceramics. They are easily found, appear in all kinds of shapes and patterns, are decorative to look at, are easily displayed and can be relatively inexpensive. They have been made in Britain since the middle of the eighteenth century and have evolved as an art form in their own right. The changes in design reflect the advances made in manufacturing processes and materials as well as changes in the fashions of society.show more
