J & G MEAKIN GYPSY TERESA'S FORTUNE TELLING CUP & SAUCER c. 1950
TEA-LEAF READING FORTUNE TELLING CUP AND SAUCER BY J & G MEAKIN, ENGLAND.
Made in the 1950s, this example is called, 'Gypsy Teresa's Fortune Telling Cup.
There are maker's marks to both the bottom of cup and the saucer. The cup has the maker and England stamped before firing. The Saucer has in black ink "Regd. SOL 391413, a Sun symbol and J & G Meakin England. So both pieces of the set are authenticated.
The cup has no damage just minor firing blemishes. The saucer however has a nick out of the underside edge which can be seen in the third image, and which is slightly visible from the top at a certain angle. The price is reflective of this minor damage.
A nice piece of Meakin for any collection.
