Hello,Sorry for the delay, we must have just missed each other last night.This is not bone china, but is a circa 1820-1850 English Staffordshire pearl ware handle less cup and saucer with sprig design.This type of ware was typically unmarked and hand painted, so there are not pattern names and is less known by makers and is commonly referred to as early Staffordshire pearl ware.Potteries like Sunderland, Adams, Hancock, and many others in Staffordshire, England made this type of item in the 1820-50 time period.This cup and saucer has a value of $60.00.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
