I’m continuing the glimpse into my sister-in-laws china cupboard with a very elegant bone china teacup by Susie Cooper.
Susie Coopers work includes her early earthenware pieces, right through Art Deco and the elegant bone china of her Wedgwood period. Her career spanned seven decades. She died in 1995 at the age of 93.
Like her contemporary, Clarice Cliff, she was one of the most important and influential designers of the twentieth century.
This cup and saucer bears the Wedgwood Group mark used between 1950-1966.
There are several books listed on Amazon featuring the career and designs of Susie Cooper.
