Condition is excellent with the exception of a single hairline running vertically down from the rim (close to the handle). This does not affect display as it does not cross any part of the illustration on the front or the text on the back.The price is however commensurately low to reflect this flaw - so this represents an opportunity to obtain a really rare example in otherwise great condition for a fraction of its flawless value.
Marked to base with the Paragon Star mark and "PARAGON FINE BONE CHINA MADE IN ENGLAND Beatrice Mallet Series. Also handpainted F636/1 4.
