Mayer & Sherratt

I love this trio, the colors and the fluted shape, it's just gorgeous!
Unfortunately it s unmarked so I can't do any reaserch, I can only tell is indeed very old, very fine porcelain.

11th October 2009 -- Update!
I went to a boot sale this morning and I found a plate that looked identical to the ones here, it had a mark on the back....BINGO! that gave me more than a clue about the pottery company: Mayer & Sherratt.
When I came back home I compared the plates, they are not identical but very similar and I have no doubt they belong to the same company. The mark dates from 1906.
This trio seems to be unmarked, but what I think it happened is that the mark was actually worn out.

*About the company:
Mayer & Sherratt
Clifton Works, Longton, Staffordshire potteries

Adderleys trio

Very unusual decoration in my opinion, I have never seen pieces of porcelain attached to a tea cup as part of the decoration. I think this tea cup is very cute.
I don't know the year when this piece was made.

Green with flowers

I can't tell what it says in the mark between ""... and there is no sign of the pottery mark either.
I like the flowers in the inside of the cup :o)
