Description:

This Square Ridged style was dubbed "Hearts" because of the heart-like lustre decoration on the finials and handles of the serving pieces. The lids of the teapots and sugar bowls appear to be almost too large for the body. Mellor Taylor made a complete dinner service in this style including such incidentals as butterpats, square sauce dishes, cups and saucers - everything except plates.
