Product Description

The perky little Blue Tit is one of our most familiar and frequent garden visitors, and it is beautifully captured on this delightful Espresso Cup and Saucer. The eye-catching blue and yellow plumage of the bird is set in contrast with the delicate white blossom among which it perches, while a similar design also features in the well of the saucer.

Cast in fine bone china, fired and carefully glazed, the Espresso Cup and Saucer offer a small but flawless surface for the skill and artistry of the painter. Working entirely by hand, using specialist ceramic pigments, the artist sketches in and then builds up the detail of the plumage, the flowers and the perky little bird on both cup and saucer; this is ceramic art of the highest quality in what is almost a miniature format. The detail of birds and flowers, and the true to life hues and details of their markings and feathers is something that only the finest hand-painters can achieve. Several firings will be required before the piece is complete, with the final one following the finishing touch of a band off 22 carat gold around both cup and saucer as well as on the handle.

Presented in a silk-lined gift box, this exquisite espresso cup would make a wonderful gift, and would also make a perfect pair with our Blue Tit and Spring Flowers Espresso Cup and Saucer. It is exclusively available from our website, and cannot be bought from any other store or online retailer.
