  • Details
    This cup and 4 saucers (5 pieces total) have a matte black exterior and top side, and shiny white glazed interior and bottom.

    They are from the "Noche" Pattern that was manufactured by Bidasoa, Spain's Block China Company in 1969 (and oddly enough, only in 1969). My guess is that its simple lines, overall spare minimalist design, and simple black matte finish, were inspired by some of the ground breaking work (including many rather spare line drawings) done by Spain's superstar artist, Pablo Picasso.

    And just as Picasso's work has become increasingly more popular with the passage of time, the clean lined mid century modern design of these dishes has also become more popular with the passage of time.

    Quite a few pieces of this pattern came to me as part of an estate, and this is the final 5 pieces in that group. 2 of the saucers are in mint condition, and the other two have slight losses to the black surface edges that border the indentation that holds the cup. The cup has an approximately 1 1/4" hairline crack down from the lip.
    The one cup is 2-1/2"h x 3-1/2"diameter at the top -- The 4 saucers 6"diameter
