To achieve a consistent pattern, the design has a transfer printed outline and then the design is hand colored, I believe. SIZE: Saucers are 4 3/8 in diameter. MARKS: On all bases as shown in photos. These were made for NYC luxury retailer Gilman Collamore.
Gilman Collamore moved to their 5th Avenue and 30th Street location in 1890 and moved to a different location about 1920. The Collamore brother's two firms rivaled Tiffany back in the day, commissioning designs from such fine English maker's Thomas Minton Sons and Copeland Spode. These are in very nice condition given their age and fragile material. One saucer has a long faint hairline and one cup has a short faint hairline (see photos).
A few minuscule blemishes on underside foot rims of a few saucers of no consequence (may even be as made). PLEASE SCAN DOWN TO VIEW SUPER ENLARGED HIGH QUALITY PHOTOS.
