This collection of Alfred Meakin demitasse cups and saucers is a delightful find for collectors and connoisseurs who cherish English china. Alfred Meakin is a name well-recognised in the vintage ceramics community, known for quality and charming designs that hark back to a genteel time when afternoon tea was a daily ritual.

The summer floral pattern with its vibrant blossoms and lush foliage, set against the creamy background and accented with a sunny yellow trim, evokes the joyful ease of summer gardens in full bloom. The modest height of approximately 2 1/4 inches and the delicate size speak to the demitasse’s purpose: to serve strong coffee or espresso, which complements the sweetness of afternoon tea desserts.

Weighing around 163 grams, each set feels substantial in hand, a hallmark of Meakin’s durable craftsmanship. The set’s provenance is assured by the maker’s mark, which is a point of pride for collectors who value authenticity and traceability in their acquisitions.

The addition of two spare saucers is a thoughtful touch, recognising the reality of wear and the potential need for replacement over time. This foresight in preserving the set’s integrity adds practical value and is a nod to the enduring nature of such collections.

Alfred Meakin’s ceramics are not just dining accoutrements; they are pieces of history that serve as a connection to England’s rich cultural heritage in pottery. Owning such a set is a means to partake in and perpetuate the legacy of fine English tableware.
