The centre of the saucer is white with two concentric pink lustre circles. There is a white band near the rim. The lustre has a thin line pattern scratched throughout. History: The saucers are from England c 1820-30. General consensus confirms lusterware originated in Baghdad around the 9th century. Gradually the technique of applying a decorative metallic glaze to pottery made its way into Egypt, and by the 13th century, lusterware was being produced in Moorish Spain. The lusterware industry survived the collapse of Arab rule in Spain during the 15th century. At that time, lusterware incorporated both Islamic and Christian influences of design. The technique made its way into Italy and other parts of Europe, but it did not become popular in England until the mid 19th century.
