A long time favourite is the teacup Black Hyacinth by Arthur Percy for Gefle. Percy (1886–1976) presented this pattern in 1956, and it is one of the finest early screen prints on porcelain from that time. The cup feels good to handle and is perfect for tea. And… it is a lovley sight with the beautiful grown flowers on the cup, and the sweet bud pattern on the saucer.
Best tea cup ever? If only there´d been a pot too…!
