O Swallow

from The Princess: O Swallow

BY ALFRED, LORD TENNYSON

O Swallow, Swallow, flying, flying South,

Fly to her, and fall upon her gilded eaves,

And tell her, tell her, what I tell to thee.

O tell her, Swallow, thou that knowest each,

That bright and fierce and fickle is the South,

And dark and true and tender is the North.

O Swallow, Swallow, if I could follow, and light

Upon her lattice, I would pipe and trill,

And cheep and twitter twenty million loves.

O were I thou that she might take me in,

And lay me on her bosom, and her heart

Would rock the snowy cradle till I died.

Why lingereth she to clothe her heart with love,

Delaying as the tender ash delays

To clothe herself, when all the woods are green?

O tell her, Swallow, that thy brood is flown:

Say to her, I do but wanton in the South,

But in the North long since my nest is made.

O tell her, brief is life but love is long,

And brief the sun of summer in the North,

And brief the moon of beauty in the South.

O Swallow, flying from the golden woods,

Fly to her, and pipe and woo her, and make her mine,

And tell her, tell her, that I follow thee.

Gold Chintz

Vintage Foreign mid century elegant Gold Chintz gilded Demitasse Tea or coffee Set In Porcelain Gold.

Excellent condition porcelain tea set with no chips, scratches, cracks, or crazing.

There is no show of wear. The gold trim shows no wear or loss. The part that is ‘white’ outside is under-glazed.

The ‘Foreign’ stamp was used by Hong Kong to specify imports from the commonwealth beginning in 1893 to identify goods coming into the UK. By 1923 all Import small porcelain manufacturers had their own mark.

(British Hong Kong was the period during which Hong Kong was under British Crown rule from 1841 to 1997 (excluding the Japanese occupation from 1941 to 1945). It was established as a Crown colony and later designated a British Dependent Territory in 1981.)

This Demitasse after dinner coffee or espresso set is containing a scene of classic maidens or nymphs in a woodland setting, in two of them a cupid is present behind a tree, or in one scene tied to a tree.

A reproduction artwork of Angelica Kauffmann (1741-1807): “Two nymphs mock cupid” while another nymph twists his bow.

Scenes are transfers or decals, not hand painted, charming romantic love theme with great appeal.
