Physical Description

Tea cup and saucer set. The cup depicts an equestrian scene of several field hunters on horseback with pack of fox hounds grouped around what could be a fox. The opposite site of the cup depicts another equestrian scene of a female and male figure on horseback jumping a fence. The cup is predominantly light green which fades to a lighter green in some areas. The cups top rim is bordered in a dark green colour and an elaborate fragile gold pattern. The surface of the cup is ribbed and the handle is coloured in gold. It also has a moustache guard. The saucer repeats the light green colouration of the mug and the ribbed surface decoration (although less pronounced than on the cup) and has a floral motif design and a repeating gold pattern around the circumference.
