Rare Royal Adderley Tea Trio cup from Ridgeway potteries. It is a Beautiful vintage stamp defect in bone china ceramic tea cup. Except the saucer and cake plate are stamped Terra Nova Queen Anne England. However it is a brilliant match. Why would they miss match such fine pieces of bone china? A manufacturer defect perhaps.
I discovered from researching “The Potteries” that The ‘Queen Anne’ trade name introduced by Ridgeway Potteries around 1950 was used 1966. The trade name was retained by Allied English Potteries Ltd and was used by Ridgway Potteries and was still in use by Royal Doulton until 1981. Ridgway Potteries were in the same group as Shore & Coggins and they also used the trade name ‘QUEEN ANNE.
So Royal Adderley And Queen Anne were from Ridgeway Potteries.
Standard size tea cup and saucer. Can combine post. Very good condition. No chips or cracks.
