Weird, pic did a reverse Davie. Right way up for normal image, fell over when zoomed, just caught the cups before they fell off the table.

Like it Steve, I'll have a delve but may be beaten to it by other tableware connaisseurs on the FCF :-D

Drawing a blank so far Steve.

I guess the answer to your coffee set is right here. I've tried but I just can't get it clear enough to read it.

How about just a tiny clue.....Scandinavian or English?

Decipherers, Ceramics experts, and Pickled Egg Question Setters
Lend me your ears.......

The coffee set of Myglaren needs a name.
The engines of the search have so far failed me.
Who shall end the misery that ensueth?
I call on you, to rise to the challenge.
And slay the anonymous pot and its frivolous
mocking cups and saucers
with a simple makers name and pattern! :-D

I don't recognise that pattern at all, the pot shape is similar to a Royal Staffordshire set I saw but the pattern is alien to me! :)

As you know I don't have the benefit of google translate but if you have you may have some luck finding this set on:

http://allegroexpress.ru/category/view/26171/?page=257

I came across the site by drilling down into a picture of a similarly shaped pot. There are only 264 pages to look through!! :-D

Would it be Scandinavian in origin ? If it is, then I've got naff-all chance of working out the text :lol:

The first line of the text looks like it could be B.E. Sxxxxxxxx
Sadly no longer a C5 owner :(

Where's our Steve? He's achieved just about the prefect blur for the bottom of that cup :-D

I did one of those invert colours so the text was in white and the background black seemed to make it tantalisingly clearer, but no nearer making out the words :-D

When I restored the coffee set to the cabinet I did try and read the bottom of the cup and failed.
Scandinavian was a good guess but it is West German, all I could read. May take a photo and blow it up see if it becomes decipherable.
