Vintage Rose China Tea Cups from Alfred Meakin

Meakin is one of the most popular makes of pottery people search for, so we were very happy to track down these lovely Alfred Meakin vintage rose cups and saucers on a trip out recently. These are decorated with red roses, blackberries and yellow leaves, with typical 50's black and grey elements to the design.

Alfred Meakin Ltd was a pottery set up in 1875 in Tunstall, UK. Alfred was the brother of James and George Meakin ( of J&G Meakin Potteries in Stoke on Trent, England), and the son of James Meakin who manufactured pottery in Longton. ...Creating beautiful cups, saucers, plates and dishes was definitely in the family!
