Pattern 832

This tea service is in Minton 'Berlin Embossed' shape. The vine and grape moulding has caused some to think it might be Ridgway. Cauldon Place, however, used vine moulding primarily on dessert wares, and not on tea wares.

Pattern 5845

The print on this tea cup and saucer was originally designed by Hicks, Meigh and Johnson and is described in the pattern description book as 'Hicks Rock & Bird'. It is not at all clear why it should be on a Minton & Hollins tea cup and saucer.
