Odd that i can't find another cup & saucer in this Sunkissed pattern anywhere. Might also be odd to have a dinnerware stamp on a cup and saucer. I guess the pattern wasn't originally mean't for cups and saucers. The saucers, although they have the same backstamp, may be oddities as they don't match the cups, unless they were made to be like that, no idea.

Do the cups not have the backstamp TC?

I've hunted around and I can only find plates too, not cups or saucers, which is odd. The plates I've found are these patterns:  http://www.replacements.com/webquote/rossun.htm

The teacup inside pattern is lemon slices which appears to be a part of this pattern: https://i.ebayimg.com/thumbs/images/g/usgAAOSwOt9Zfljs/s-l225.jpg

Yes they are both marked the same.

They were given to us for free, one of the cups has a crack in the handle so i have to be careful with that one. I'm not expecting them to be worth much since it's later production, which is a shame since they are quite nice. They are printed and hand painted with each piece having either lemons, bananas, or oranges. But yeah, kind of bizarre not to see any online (pun intended).    :)

I found a teapot, that is all so far.

Seems the design was made after 1952 according to this book, Clarice Cliff: The Art of Bizarre...

How curious, I will keep my eyes open for more pieces in this design, TC.
