Antique Gaudy Welsh cup, saucer and bowl. Circa 1825. These are very early handmade pieces with the typical Gaudy Welsh colours of russet, green, and cobalt blue on a cream background. Although manufactured in Great Britain and Wales, the name Gaudy Welsh was coined by Americans due to its popularity with the Welsh people who emigrated to North America. The pattern is also known as Swansea Cottage in Great Britain. Gaudy Welsh is better known in North America (where much of it was exported and sold) than in the UK, its country of manufacture. In spite of being almost 200 years old, these pieces remain bright and cheerful. Sold as a set of three pieces.
