This gorgeous strawberry set consists of a china cream jug and sugar bowl with a silver plated sugar sifter in a silver plated stand. The jug & bowl are by Foley Art China in a green & pink Rennie Mackintosh style design known as Peacock Pattern. They both sit in their individual compartments in the silver plated stand that has ball feet a scalloped base and a key hole shaped handle with 2 spheres part way up the stem. The small sugar sifter has a curved handle and a pierced floral design bowl and is stamped "EPNS". The underside of the base is stamped "EPNS" in a rectangular cartouche and "J.B.C & S. Ltd" in a sickle moon shaped cartouche for J.B.Chatterley & Sons Ltd of Birmingham.
Both the jug & sugar bowl have the Foley Art China Peacock Pattern printed mark for c.1905.
We just could not resist this set even though we tend not to buy china these days.
