Jackson and Gosling Cup of Knowledge Basketweave pattern set

This Cup of Knowledge cup and saucer set was manufactured by the Grosvenor China Company, under its Jackson and Gosling name, in the Ye Olde English pattern. I have given the unnamed design the name "Basketweave."

The Cup of Knowledge cartomancy decal design inside the cup was applied to tea cups made, decorated, and fired at the British Empire Exhibition during 1924 and 1925 at Wembley. After the Wembley Exhibition closed, Grosvenor China Company / Jackson and Gosling / Ye Olde English made very few further cartomancy cups because the decal design for the Cup of Knowledge that had been shared among the six potteries was purchased for exclusive use by Aynsley.
