Price includes shipping and insurance within the US.
This is a rare tea cup. Fine quality Aynsley “The Cup of Knowledge” Leigh shape footed tea cup & saucer, made in England, also called a fortune telling tea cup. It features playing cards on a white interior and an attractive rose pink on the exterior with generous gold gilt trim. The mark was used after 1972. This cup was produced in several colors, the most common being green. The rose/mauve color is very rare and only about one a year come up for sale online. This cup still has its original stickers and appears to have never been used. It was on display in a dining room cabinet when I found it. No box, it would sell for double if it did. This is a very desirable cup for a collector. It would make a lovely display piece in any decor or can be used functionally as well.

Condition: Excellent condition. No wear on the gold trim. There is a scratch on the saucer about .5 – .75″ long (see photo.) There is no color loss and it is not noticeable except under strong light.
