Vintage 1970s John Tams Basket Weave Tea Cup & Saucer


We love a good cuppa at Interior Superior and prefer to drink ours from a preloved retro cup and saucer with a dunking biscuit on the side. This super 70s rich tan brown cup and saucer is the perfect addition to any vintage lovers tea cup collection. Made in England by John Tams circa 1970, the Tams family operated one of the Staffordshire potteries from 1874 – 2006 making earthenware ceramics. The cup and border of the saucer have an embossed basket weave texture design, hence the name Basket Weave. We love the strong vintage vibe of this set.

Each item is in excellent vintage condition – no chips, cracks or repairs. Like anything over 40 years old, there may be tiny areas of wear to the pattern in places, but nothing that would detract from its beauty or function. We recommend extra TLC for all our preloved pieces so advise hand washing.
