Grafton China Tea Cup - Antique China, Fine China and Modern China Manufacturers Query
Grafton China Tea Cup - Antique China, Fine China and Modern China Manufacturers Query: I have a grafton china tea cup that is narrow at the bottom, on the inside of the cup there is a bouquet of flowers with what I think might be a flowering rose in the middle. The outside of the cup is light pink. The saucer is a matching pink with a matching floral design in the middle. Can you help me find information on the pattern?

Thanks for your interesting query about a very prolific and important maker (see my A to Z China Manufacturers Guide on this site). A picture would have been nice!
I can certainly help you if you are prepared to help yourself. If you go to my China Replacement page and from there follow the link to a site called Replacements.com, you will find a large gallery of Royal Grafton patterns. The Grafton patterns are all listed under 'R' for Royal Grafton, not 'G' for Grafton. When you get to the correct page, be sure to click on the BLUE IMAGE BARs on the very left hand side of the page. This makes it super easy to quickly browse thousands of patterns. This site is award winning for good reasons. See if you can find you pattern there. Also, whist on my China Replacement page, follow the instructions on how to find hidden items on ebay. You can get a feel for value of Royal Grafton there.
Best regards, hope that helps
