This listing includes four cups and saucers by Hammersley & Company in their Asiatic "Pheasants", #6908, pattern. This pattern features sprays of flowers with a bird, of course, and a green border and gold trim. They are marked "Ovington Brothers New York H & Co England", and have the pattern number "6908" hand written on the base also. The H & Co mark indicates that these were manufactured prior to 1912.Please note that these have gold trim around the foot of the cups. Some I obtained in this lot, and will sell separately, did not. The saucers measure 5 1/2 diameter. The cups are 4" diameter and 2" tall at the rim.
This china does not have any chips or nicks. I can't see any crazing under normal lighting conditions.
However, I held them in bright sunlight and can see that one cup does have fine overall crazing, and one other has a little on the underside near the foot. The crazing is in the clear glaze. I don't see any on the other two cups, and none on the saucers. The gold trim has very little wear, if any. I try to give any information I have about the listings, and to tell you whether the information is fact or opinion.
My description will point out anything I find that could possibly be considered a flaw. For this reason, many past buyers felt that they received a better product than they expected.I use padded envelopes, peanuts, bubble wrap, and Styrofoam packaging as necessary to ensure safe arrival. If you live on the west coast please allow that transit time and costs will be more than average from Florida. FEEDBACK: I leave feedback weekly for customers with cleared payments. If my service or product did not meet your expectations in any way please contact me.
Quite simply, my goal is to make an honest living and have fun at the same time. I strive to provide reasonable prices and excellent service.
