This is a rare Carlton Ware coffee set with a lovely rainbow lustre ware glaze over a purple base, with gilt interiors to the cups and sugar bowl and milk jug or creamer. This purple lustre ware set dates to the 1920's and includes six demitasse cups and saucers, a lidded coffee pot, open sucrier and open milk jug or creamer. The finish on these pieces is lovely, with some light usage ware to the saucers, but this set is in otherwise in very good antique condition. This is an excellent example of Art Deco lustre ware made by one of the leading ceramic producers of the time in the United Kingdom.

These pieces are stamped "Carlton" to the base, identifying them as pre-1928, when the company registered its script trademark.
