There was just the one photo.Just let me know what you set is comprised of, we won't bother with more photos.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The set is composed of coffee jug, milk jug. and six saucers and three cups
My aim is to obtain three replacement cups to complete the set

This is a Grafton China tea set from the 1930's and the pattern would be referenced by the numbers in red on the bottom of the cup. The photo is blurry, but it looks like 5950 or 5950N. They did not have names for all of their patterns, so the number would serve as the best reference.The value of your set is $150 to $160 GBp currently and more cups and saucers are about 15.50GBP per set.We are not a china finding service, but I did look via image searches and numbered pattern searches for more cups and did not find any out there right now. It would be good for you to do a search every now and then when you have time because new items are placed online everyday.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
