A pair of two cups and saucers manufactured by Hostess Tableware in the attractive and very popular Black Velvet pattern, made of fine bone china.
The Black Velvet pattern seems to be one of a number that John Russell designed for Hostess Tableware circa 1970/71.
Cups: 7.7cm high
Saucers: 14.7cm diameter
Condition: No cracks, chips or crazing. There are some light utensil marks on the surfaces of the saucers and inside the cups but nothing bad.
