They're not tea cups

. . . so they didn't qualify for today's tea cup post.

But it seemed churlish not to share them with my fellow Glasgow Style enthusiasts simply because they are the wrong shape and don't have handles. I passionately believe in equal rights for tea plates.

So here are some more George Logan designs for Foley Peacock Pottery c.1901-05.








Well, they're mine so I'm biased, but I think they're gorgeous.

I quite agree - gorgeous is the only word.

Wonderful, just love them! Would it be too awful to ask if you would show the markings on the backs of the saucers? I did leave a comment on the teacup post, but it seems to have disappeared.

Hi Sherry/Cheryl! No it wouldn't be too awful at all! I nearly did and then though it looked a bit too like an eBay listing. I'll post a couple of backstamps when I photograph my next batch in a few days' time (more Peacock Pottery, but this time with a non-Glasgow, English rose theme).

Juliet, I will look forward to it! I am in the antiques trade, so perhaps am a bit obsessed, but the markings on the backs tell stories. Cannot ever resist turning over a piece of china. Which can occasionally cause a bit of embarrassment.
