This is a beautifully matched pair of patriotic American eagle teacups and saucers from the 1840s. They are made of bone china with a thick cobalt blue top border design with gold stars, gold outer pinstripes, and a gold top rim edge. They feature a central Heraldic American eagle with a red and white shield, clutching an olive branch and a bundle of arrows in its talons. Fourteen tiny gold stars are positioned above the eagle's head.
Each cup measures 2.5" tall and 3.5" in diameter, saucers are 5.5" in diameter. No makers marks. This set is in very good condition with only minor wear to the gold.
