Allertons 19th C "Shamrock" Trio's 28 Pieces
28 Pieces of 19th century Allerton's china in the "shamrock" design. The design is done in a gorgeous and unsual teal colour seen mostly in antique pottery and china. The pottery marks date this set to 1890.
The handles of the tea cups and the edges of all pieces have been decorated with gold , much of which is now faded.
There are 7 tea cups, 9 saucers and 12 small plates. 2 of the tea cups have hairline cracks but they are not a complete loss as they would make charming holder for candles. In all there are 5 complete "trio's", 4 extra saucers, 7 extra side plates and the 2 "candle holder" cups.
