Dresden Style Large Cup & Saucer w/Cobalt Blue, Gold & H.P. Floral Decoration
The "Dresden Style" on the other hand refers to the artistic techniques employed by these decorators. Rococo Revival, a technique characterized by a profusion of elaborate fanciful design and grandeur of foliage, flowers, fruits, shells and scrolls with gold gilding.
Even though I have been able to verify the marking on this cup and saucer, circa 1870-1890, it fits this genre. Both the cup and saucer have two cartouches of elaborate hand painted roses, viola, morning glory and other floral in a profusion of colors. Areas of cobalt blue adorned with gold swirls and brushed designs separate the floral arrangements. The wide interior rim of the cup is gold gilded as well as other highlighted areas. The cup measures 4 1/2" across and 3 1/8" in depth. The deep saucer, for cooling your hot tea or coffee, measures 6 1/2" across and 1 3/8" in depth. The saucer is unmarked, the cup is marked with a large blue "H". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; some very minor scratches or wear on the gold If anyone can identify the marking, please leave me know. It is a beautiful piece of china.
