susie cooper tea pot and cups

Susie Cooper was born in 1902, at Stansfield near Burslem. Her first job was as a paintress for the pottery decorating firm of A.E. Gray at the age of 20.  She wanted more freedom to do her designs and set out on her own at the age of 27 to become an independent pottery producer. Her earlier art deco designs are widely collected and valuable.

The above pattern was designed sometime in 1955 and is called Parrot Tulip.  The shape of the dishes is Quail.  I believe these are decorated using lithographs on bone china.

Unfortunately the coffee pot is damaged beyond repair. there is a huge crack down the back side and one on the front. Only the lid is in perfect condition.  I saved the teapot to show the Quail shape.

The rest of the set will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON which is open 7 days a week all year round.

Set includes 5 demi tasse cups and 5 saucers (one of the cups has a hairline crack) cream and sugar.

Priced at $45 for the cups and saucers and cream and sugar.
