Set of six cups (no saucers) in blue and white, willow pattern. These are large (old fashioned farmhouse style, not tea party size) and measure about 3 1/2" in diameter x 2 1/4" tall.

These are marked only Made in France, and look to us like faience(pottery, not porcelain). If we hadn't seen the marking on these we would have guessed they were Dutch, maybe 1920s. We're unsure of the history of blue willow made in France, though.

They have a little browning at the feet and cup rims, and some crazing and discoloration from use. They are not new, by any means! They came out of the estate of a collector of blue and white, who had pieces as old as the 1700s, but as far as we saw, nothing newer than the 1960s.
