Here is an exquisite hand painted egg shell china cup signed by the artist, featuring delicate pink apple blossoms and rich green leaves. The cup handle and edges of cup and saucer are hand painted with gold enamel. This dainty piece of porcelain is nearly weightless. The cup is 2 3/8" tall and 2 3/4" across the brim. The saucer is 5 1/2" in diameter and is signed M Peal. Marked under glaze with incised number 214 and an elongated X shape (or crossed swords?), also on underside of saucer. We believe it to be from circa 1890-1900. This is truly a little treasure, without a single blemish.
We have a number of lovely European cup and saucer sets listed currently, and we are pleased to offer additional sets at no extra shipping charge should you be interested in purchasing more than one set. We will adjust your price at checkout.
