Great Gatsby cup and saucer, old sport.

Today sees the release of one of the most anticipated movies for a long time.. The Great Gatsby. Baz Luhrmann has a lot to live up to since his Romeo & Juliet movie from 1996. And it has made the interiors and fashion worlds go gaga for Gatsby style.

Richard Brendon is a London-based designer well known for his considered, refined and dynamic designs. His business started shortly after he graduated from Kingston University in 2010, with a degree in product and furniture design. He has also attracted high profile stockists such as Liberty, Lane Crawford and Le Bon Marché.


These platinum-gilded cups mirror the pattern saucers, reuniting them as a perfect couple. A trademark Brendon style, the mirrored cups take upon the pattern of the saucers and when removed have a perfect solid colour to them giving them a contemporary feel.

Made in Stoke-on-Trent, the bone china cups are hand painted with platinum and then paired with orphan saucers, which are meticulously selected from antique dealers across Britain.



The range of antique saucers date from 1870-1930 (with the odd gem from the 50s occasionally too). Richard has also sourced some rather rare saucers pre-1850. To qualify as rare they must be produced by a prestigious factory and be very beautiful.
