Original 1950s ceramic cups.
These lovely, original vintage cups or beakers were made by Empire, a well known British pottery in the late 19th/early20th century. They have the Empire stamp on the bottom as well as the date of manufacture; in this case 1953 and '54. They have some crazing in the glaze and some very minor chips and marks - as you would expect with genuine vintage. They make lovely vases, tooth mugs, pencil pots...
