AYNSLEY - THE CUP OF KNOWLEDGE - FORTUNE TELLING CUP AND SAUCER WITH ORIGINAL INSTRUCTION BOOKLET

A beautiful Aynsley Porcelain cup and saucer marked to the inside, THE CUP OF KNOWLEDGE made in the 1920s. The interior also has different playing cards in red and black on to which the residual tea-leaves would fall and a reading made of the fortune of the tea drinker. Aynsley made a number of wonderful different designs of these cups which varied in shape, patterns and colour ways. This is a very simple light blue foliate design on both the cup and saucer. It also retains most of the gilding to the rims and handle of the cup and to the circumference of the saucer. This example comes with the original booklet which says "Copyright 1924" Please see the Archive for other examples we have had.
