1950s red china tea sets in the yay retro! china shop

It's so hard to find a vintage red tea set, so finding this one from the 1950s was really great! There are 4 cups, saucers and tea plates, a sugar bowl and even a serving plate. The cups are a very bright post box red, and the plates and saucers are off white and have a wonderful red, black and yellow pattern featuring bamboo plants and a sunny scene with Chinese Sampan boats, typical of the 1950s.

This set is unmarked for some reason, yet bears a very close resemblance to the Alfred Meakin & Barratts bamboo designs, and is obviously from this period. We have more red china coming into the yay retro! china shop very soon, so keep an eye out.

Perfect for warming up the dull Winter months, and for celebrating sunny Summers!
