Emma Dolan 20th-century design tea cups

Admirers of the designers like Clarice Cliff, Susie Cooper and Charles Rennie Mackintosh may want to investigate the work of Emma Dolan and her twentieth-century design tea cups.

Pieces are priced individually but, to give you an idea of price, the Clarice cup costs £160.
