Manufacturer: Syracuse China
Pattern name: Brittany Cottage – P-87 A and B
Date of cup: circa 1933-1940s
Notes: From the pages of a Syracuse China pattern book contributed by Larry Paul dated March 3, 1933 and shown above, we know that this pattern was designed to be used on Adobe Ware like the shown example. However, examples have also been found on Syracuse China's Old Ivory body.
According to Larry, the Brittany Cottage "designs were originally painted with colors by hand. The outlines are transfers. Some designs were later converted to color decals that tried to capture the hand-painted look."
