Hello Nora, I have another Goodwill...
Hello Nora,
I have another Goodwill find. A teacup & saucer by Bartley International. I can not find any information online about this maker. Could this be a trade name for another manufacturer? The backstamp only states Bartley International, bone china, made in England. The number is ***** It's a pretty little set. Any idea a date range for the style? And is the blue trim considered as brushed. Thanks as always for any & all help.
Regards,
Cathy

Hi,

Thank you for your patience and very nice to 'see' you again here today, Cathy.

Bartley International from England was indeed its own entity and they produced bone china in the 1950s - 1960s.

The numbers on the underside are the pattern 'name'. Yes, the rim edges of the cup and saucer are done with a stylized brush effect and adds a color contrast too.

Here is a link for you to a match to your cup and saucer that sold for $10:
