Four Vintage Colclough "Red Roses" Tea Trios c.1960. The cups are 7cm tall. The saucers are 14cm in diameter. The teaplates are 16cm in diameter.

All these items are made of molded bone china bases. After firing, they have been covered in a translucent glaze. Pretty Red Rose transfer prints have then been added to both sides of the cups, and to the top of the saucers and biscuit plates. Gold highlights have been painted around the tops, bottoms and handles of the cups, and around the outside edges of the saucers and biscuit plates.

One cup has very light wear to the gold decoration. One saucer has wear marks in the centre; another has a minor manufacturing flaw on the underside, while a third has a tiny decoration miss on the outside edge. One biscuit plate has light wear marks on the outside edge and pronounced foot marks underneath, while another has small scratches in the centre, (auction priced accordingly)

The Colclough factory was founded in 1890 in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England, and ran until 1996. It was renowned for producing fine bone china items. The back stamp on the base of these pieces indicates that they were made after 1962, but before the early 70's.

These four vintage tea trios are fantastic items, and would look great in a collection of vintage china, as well as in domestic use.
