Gilt splendour – Ridgway ca 1813

The colours on this Ridgway tea and coffee quartet are a real treat to the eye. It is not just the rich gilding – the fact that the gilt is set against a peach background that seems to blend with the gilt makes it truly amazing. Mix in some lilac sprigs and you have some truly stunning cups. It was made in about 1813 and it is still glowing today. You can find the listing here in my Antiques shop.
