Mid Century Ultra California Vernonware Cups in Carnation Pink


These mid century ceramic tea cups are part of a collection of dinnerware called "Ultra California" produced in the 1940's. They have the unique "Ultra" upside down handle designed by Jane Bennison, daughter of Faye Bennison, who was head of the company, Authentic Vernonware.

They measure 4 5/8" wide at the opening including the handle and are 2" high. Made in California, USA by Vernon Potteries, LTD. Sold as a set of six but we can sell as few as two if you prefer. Just message us so we can work out the shipping. One cup has a chip on the base as seen in photo six. Another has a slight vertical chip as seen in photo 9. There are a few small manufacturer flaws where the glaze is missing.

Let us know if you'd like to buy other pieces in this pattern that we have listed and we will work up a package deal.
