    Are you sure the cups and saucers are English? The paste looks awfully white for bone china, looks more like hardpaste and the decoration isn't what I'd expect to see in an English production - they look more like continental pieces to me - but I've been wrong before, so take that with a large pinch, OK? ;)

    I assumed english, the handle looks english. You can see your hand shadow thru the porcelain.

    I agree, the handle does look English and the Gothic revival style puts it in the third quarter of the 19thc - still, the paste is very white and highly translucent ...bone china isn't quite as stark white as that, but it could be the photos too. Nice pair though!

    My impression, too, is not English. Other than that I've nothing to offer, sorry, as I only collect English pieces. Very pretty!

    Not one of ours, imo. German or Austrian, probably.
