Rare Antique Black Negro Girls Cotton Tin Cup & Saucer Plate Childs Tea Set For Sale
Thissale is for a extremely rare old tincup and saucer or platethat once belonged to a childrens tea
set. It is not marked as to maker or country of origin.It was most likely made at the end of the 19th century (1800's)
or very early 20th century (1900's) based on its design.I personally have only seen pieces of this tea set come up for sale 3 times.
The cup has a continuous lithograph of two young black girls leaning ona bale of hay with tuffs of cotton coming out of the bale where it has been torn. The girls are looking upward dreaming or thinking about who knows what. Incredible expressions on their faceswith their big brown eyes and lips. Really, it is amazing. What does it say to you? You can almost feel how they feel. The saucer has a young boy or girl sitting on a table with a big floppy hat on. A happy expression is on the face as if in mischef. Love the cotton gingham outfit with ruffle edges. Just look at all the detail from the toenails to the wonderful face. Please take the time to look at all the finedetail in these two pieces and the fabulous facial expressions. I find this tea set very moving.
Thecup stands 2 1/4" tall and the saucer is 4" in diameter.The cup is missing its handle and both pieces have wear plus bumps/bends .However, the lithographs to meare still amazing. Please see photographs to make your determination of
condition. It is amazing they have survivedat allwhen you considerthey aremade
of tin,their age andthatthey wereplayed with by a child. Some may
callthis item atoy, doll or miniature piece of childrens dishes.
Thisset would be a wonderfuladdition to many types of collections
like tin tea sets, childrens or litho toys, historical, ethnic, BlackAmericana and Memorabilia,etc. Please look at my other antiquechildrens tin tea
set itemsI have for sale as I always combine shipping cost. If you have
