peace pattern decoration ban lifted

During the Second World war, decoration on goods that used up precious resources was forbidden. After the war this ban was lifted. This decorated teacup and saucer is made by Salisbury and the pattern is called 'PEACE'. For me it symbolises the end of the dark times.
