Set of 3 J.H. Weatherby Hanley England Chuckleheads Teacups & Saucers - Panda, Monkey, Elephant
Item: Set of 3 Teacups & 3 Saucers
Make: J.H. Weatherby Hanley & Sons (stamped "Weatherby Hanley England, Reg. App. For)
Construction: English Porcelain
Dimensions: Each cup is ~ 3" in diameter. Each saucer is ~ 5 5/8" in diameter.
Condition: Very good. There are no chips or cracks, however the elephant does show signs of crazing and what looks to be a manufacturing defect in the glaze. (See photos.) One of the three saucers is slightly paler yellow than the other two.
Details: 'Chuckleheads' were a line of items produced by Weatherby Hanley that were cups and saucers shaped like animals. These are fairly rare and difficult to find, making this set in such great condition a true treasure. Please review photos carefully for more details.
