Vintage Minton Coffee Can Cup & Saucer Set Benedicta Gold Crown Wreath Mark

A lovely Art Deco English porcelain coffee can style cup and saucer set by Minton decorated in pattern Benedicta having a burnt red background against the white bone china ground with flowers and trees against blue. The cup is further highlighted in gold trim.

MARKS: The cup is marked in gold with "founded in 1793 MINTON Fine Bone China Made in England". The mark matches records indicating 1945 and after. We were able to find this pattern that was reissued as part of the archive collection in 1990 under the "contrasts archive" line but all of the 1990 versions are marked "contrasts 1990" along with the Royal Doulton mark. It is are belief upon research that this is a 1940s to 1950s piece.

Measurements:
Cup: 2.5" T (6cm)
Saucer 5.50" Diam (13.8 cm)

Circa 1945-

Condition
Both cup and saucer are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, repairs or damage of any kind.
