Shown is a marvelous 7 PC. SET OF STEAMSHIP CHINA from THE CUNARD STEAMSHIP LINE. Could date to the 1930's. This set would have been a tea service for 4. Consists of 4 tea cups (2 1/2" high), 4 saucers (5" dia.), sugar (1 13/16" high) and a creamer (4 1/16" high). All 11 pieces of the 7 pc. set are marked identically -- "The Cunard Steam-ship Company United, Foley Bone China, Stoniers, Liverpool" (see last picture). Condition? The 4 cups and saucers and the sugar and creamer are in perfect condition!!! The teapot has what I believe to be what is a manufacturer's flaw -- there is a crack along the bottom (on the outside only) below the spout's corner at the base (see 8th picture). Does not show inside whatsoever!!! Also, same on the bottom -- shows tiny crack on that same corner (see 9th picture - again, does not show on inside). I believe this all has to do with the EXCEPTIONALLY UNUSUAL configuration of the spout WITHIN the teapot (see 7th picture). Repeating, condition of all 4 cups, sugar and creamer are without detraction!!! Teapot very usable as well. Thanks for looking at this wonderful old steamship collectible!!!
