The tea cup measures 10.5cm (4 1/8") rim to rim and 5cm (2") high to the rim. The coffee cup measures 8.6cm (3 3/8") rim to rim and 6.8cm (2 11/16") high to the rim and the saucer measures 14.8cm (5 3/4") wide and 2.5cm (1") high.
In good condition: the tea cup has some minor fridging/scuffing to a small section of the rim, please see the final photographs, and both cups are finely crazed on the outside and one of these craze lines on the tea cup at the rim appears as a short hairline. No other damage, repair or restoration and minor handling wear.
