The Welsh Sale is a hugely popular auction of Welsh Art and Welsh porcelain, pottery and selected Welsh items.

The sale has been operating for over 10 years in its current format and has in that time generated some record prices.

It may have been an experimental saucer or possibly a very late output in the production time-line. The large size indicates that the saucer was probably meant to be used with an oversized breakfast cup.
