We researched this cup and saucer extensively and have not been able to establish if Argyle is the pattern or brand. We cannot find any manufacturer having used the brand Argyle associated with the Staffordshire Argyle Rd factory. Many manufacturers have produced Argyle pattern china, but nothing matching this set.
