Thanks for your inquiry about your antique Coalport demitasse cups & saucers. I love when they are easy like this. I love it even more if contributors upload photos of their wares. We want to see all this wonderful fine china! (To find out how, see below...
If your demitasse cups have the pottery mark "England
" they most likely date anywhere from c.1900 to 1920 (possibly slightly before - earliest possible is 1881). If they have "made in England
" they are after 1920.
If the COALPORT MADE IN ENGLAND
pottery mark backstamp is in a straight line (rather than a curve) this denotes the revised standard mark post 1960+.
So now you know all that, you are definitely wondering what they are worth. For a shortcut to a valuations specialist, try my 'Bring In The Experts'

Once there, scroll down to the link which says:"click on this specially coded "replacement china" link which will open a new page in a new window"
Once at the new page put in the following words exactly:
"Coalport demitasse cups saucers"
DO NOT change the words or add more.
Then check the "Include title and description" box, then press search. You will then get a range of different priced demitasse cups and saucers (make sure to SCROLL DOWN to the international sellers too).
