Antique British Boer War 1899-1900 Commemorative Cup and Saucer

Antique British Boer War 1899-1900 Commemorative Cup and Saucer

$72.00

Resplendent with all the regalia of the British Empire, this gorgeous antique bone china cup and saucer was produced to commemorate the 2nd Boer War of 1899 between Great Britain and two independent Boer Republics: the South African Republic and the Orange Free State.

With lavish details and lovely hand-painted embellishments, the cup features a central heraldic crest with the words "Each Doing His Country's Work" encircled with the military motto of "Ready Aye Ready" and dotted with hand-applied enamel. On one side of the crest is a Scottish Highlander Soldier and on the other, a Lancer cavalryman. Below the crest are the dates 1899 - 1900. (A curious note: perhaps this date range was wishful thinking as the 2nd Boer War continued until 1902.)

Rich with regal, patriotic imagery on both the cup and the saucer and hand-brushed with touches of gold, this lovely and very rare find is sure to make quite the addition to your collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In good antique condition with some wear to paint that can be seen in alternate images. Cup measures 2.5"H x 3.75"W. Saucer measures 5.75"D.
