‘Nightingale’ Coffee Cups and Saucers by Maria Jeglinska

$ 84.00 – $ 126.00
by 1882

‘Nightingale’ is inspired by Andersen’s tale, written in 1843, about a Chinese Emperor who prefers the tinkling of a mechanical bird (which eventually breaks down) to the song of a real nightingale.

The ‘Nightingale’ pattern is composed of two differently treated earthenware surfaces: one involves a mechanical reproduction of a hand drawn pattern; the second is hand glazed without deliberate decor by a skilled craftsman. Is ‘perfect’ beautiful, or does beauty lie in imperfection?

Dimensions: Diameter 6.5 cms x H 5.5 cms (cup), Diameter 12cms (saucer)

These coffee cups and saucers are sold in sets of four cups with four saucers and six cups with six saucers.  Please choose your preferred set below.

Please note that your coffee cups will be very similar, but not identical, to the sample shown here.  This is because each cup is hand glazed and therefore unique.  These variations are not considered faults but are a feature of your set.

These ceramic coffee mugs and saucers complement the ‘Nightingale’ Coffee Set.
