A Time Remembered

Circa: c1950
Condition: Used
Manufacturer: New Chelsea Porcelain Co. Ltd./Made in England
This lovely multi colored floral pedestal cup and saucer was made by the New Chelsea China Company and is marked: Royal Chelsea / English Bone China / Made in England. The cup is also marked with the number 494 AD while the saucer just has the D on it.
The New Chelsea Porcelain Co. Ltd. (c1912-1951) was a manufacturer of bone china at the Stanley Works, and subsequently at Bagnall St (Chelson St), Longton.
The New Chelsea business was established by brothers R.H. & S.L. Plant in about 1900 and traded as Plant Bros until about 1912 when the New Chelsea name was adopted. The company continued to be controlled by the Plant family and during the Second World War it was concentrated with the parent firm at the Tuscan Works of R. H. & S. L. Plant Ltd. Post-1945 the New Chelsea business was re-established and modernised, but in September 1951 the business and trade names were sold to Susie Cooper Pottery Ltd. and the new business then operated under the name New Chelsea China Co. Ltd.
New Chelsea Porcelain Co. Ltd produced good quality, moderately priced bone china teaware and coffee ware. In the 1920s the company produced some striking teaware decorated with colourful on-glaze enamelling. Trade names include Chelson China and New Chelsea.
The trade name Royal Chelsea was used from c.1943 especially on teaware for the North American market. Marks do not include the company name, but have the script Chelsea, New Chelsea or Royal Chelsea trade name below an anchor.
The beautiful floral array in colors that include red, white, orange, yellow, green, brown, purple and cerise cover the cup inside and out and the saucer with a heavy band of gold trim.
In very good + condition without chips, cracks or fleabites it does have fine age crazing throughout which I have shown in my pictures and the cup measures 2 1/4 inches tall, 4 3/8 inches across the rim and 2 inches across the base while the saucer measures a 6 inches in diameter.
An addition to any Royal Chelsea Cup and Saucer Collection.
