This pot de creme cup (actually we have 4) is very interesting.  The asiatic pheasant pattern is one that was used extensively by Copeland Spode on ornate dinnerware sets.  The design is a glorious, colorful peacock with assorted flowers, leaves and other Asian inspired decore.  The design was originally found on old Chinese Export pieces. This pot de creme cup is part applied transfers with hand painting on top of the transfer.  What's further interesting is all the pieces have light crazing but so uniform that appears that it may have been part of the design perhaps to make it look like an ancient Chinese pattern.  This is just conjecture by the way.  But for the fact it is on every surface of every piece it's not random as most of the crazing we see. 
 
In any event, crazing on purpose or for effect; the cups are beautifully detailed. The cups were produced for Thomas Goode. & Company, London, England. T. Good & Co. started in 1827 as a very high-end store that researched a miriad of porcelain patterns and then had the wares made by diffierent manufacturers.  They even would commission custom designs for their important customers.  While these could have been Spode the mark (backstamp) is difficult to read, but the name Spode or Copeland is not mentioned.
 
We believe these pieces were manufactured around, or prior to 1910.  Each cup has a simple gold-tipped finial and a touch of gold on the handle.  There is also a rim of gold around the lid and the very top of the cup.  Each cup has about a 2 ounce capacity and measures 3 1/2" tall to the tip of the final x 3 1/2" wide including the handle.
 
Condition Notes:  The cups are all in good condition with no chips or hairline cracks. There is very minimal gold loss.  The cups do each have crazing marks which we described above.  
Condition Antique, see condition notes.
