Go ahead and chip a tooth on this cup and saucer, there are plenty to spare! Covered in striking a black and white molar pattern, this bone china cup and saucer set is part of a unique range of fine china illustrating the anatomy and histology of the digestive system.
The function of the teeth is to break down food into smaller pieces (mastication). Their shape is perfectly designed for this purpose having many cusps and grooves. This provides an irregular surface to tear and grind food matter. the coating of the teeth is comprised of enamel which is the hardest substance in the human body so can endure much wear.
The cup depicts molar teeth with their features; central fossa, cusp, groove and ridge.
