Royal Grafton cup and saucer

My yard sale find today was this Royal Grafton bone china cup and saucer.  I was delighted with the pale green and pink color, as well as the $3 price.

P6270715

It was made by  A. B. Jones & Sons from the Grafton works in Stoke-on-Trent, England. 

P6270714  

The china mark on the saucer was used between 1957 and 1961.  This company was in business from 1900 – 1972.  So far I have been unable to find this pattern online, but it is fun to research these bargains.

hello. that is a lovely cup and saucer. wanted to tell you that the tea I sampled at the caw caw interpretive center was very good. it had a nice floral flavor. We did not drink much of it as the outdoor temperature was near 100 degrees where we were. but I enjoyed the sips that I tasted.

Well you certainly scored this weekend! That is a beautiful set, and I especially like the pretty soft green and the bands of color on the cup and saucer and the flowers and the gold accents ... well, I guess that means I pretty much like everything about it, ha! But congrats on your find!

This set is sooooo adorable. I love the “mintea” green color and all the flowers and what a price. Keep looking for such treasures my friend.

I'm so happy I found your blog! I bought a Royal Grafton set the other day with the same exact stamp but couldn't find out anywhere when it was made. Now thanks to you the mystery has been solved. Thank you!
