Due to the nature of the teacup as opposed to the saucer, it is more common for the former to break than the latter; Reflect by Richard Brendon, a London based designer and British bone china specialist, addresses this problem in a clever way. Instead of focusing on the cup itself, this collection puts all of the attention on the remaining saucer.
Reflect by Richard Brendon does so through the creation of mirrored teacups. The surface reflects the patterns of the saucer to create the illusion of a complete set without actually antique shopping exhaustively until the matching design is found again. Brendon writes, "I wanted the cup to be quiet, and just reflect the pattern."
