The vintage teacup I’m sharing today is white with a cobalt blue and light blue pattern embellished with gold trim.
The mark is in green -- a W topped by a crown. I have no idea what the name of the maker might be. If anyone knows or has a guess, I would appreciate hearing from you.
UPDATE! Blogger Johanna from Germany has informed me that "The mark is German from Heinrich Winterling in Marktleuthen." She also provided the URL for the manufacturer's marks: http://www.porzellan-indischblau.de/marken/winterling1.htm
Thank you, Johanna. If you've not visited her blog, Silber + Rosen [Silver and Roses], you must do so. I spent over an hour perusing her blog and book website, and bookmarked several posts to return with comments.
The inside of the cup has the same pattern as the saucer
The sides of the cup is gently sculpted and has gilt decoration.
The foot of the cup is curved white with four gilt stripes.
The cup handle has gentle curves harmonizing with the overall design;
I am quite delighted to add this set to my blue and white teacup collection!
