The Alaska Fireweed design on this vintage porcelain demitasse cup and saucer is so lovely! Both the cup and saucer feature a spray of Fireweed in soft pink with highlights of tan and light green on a white background. This elegant design was created so when the cup and saucer are aligned, the fireweed on the cup and saucer become a single spray. The words "Alaska Fireweed" are written in pink flowing script on the saucer. The cup is a countess shape and is rimmed in gold with a splash of gold on the handle. The saucer is also rimmed in gold.
This Alaskan souvenir set is a Viletta's Arts design with the distinctive mark of an artist's palate and brushes stamped in gold. The backstamp shows that the cup was produced in Western Germany by Golden Crown. The cup measures 2 ¼ inches high by 2 ½ inches across the top, and the saucer is 4 ¼ inches in diameter. The cup and saucer are both in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or crazing. There is a teeny rough spot under the glaze on the rim above the design of the cup, but this is a manufacture's anomaly and in no way distracts from the loveliness of the cup. The gold trim on both cup and saucer shows little to no wear.
This cup and saucer are reminiscent of the beautiful fields of Fireweed which bloom so profusely in the Alaska summers. It is a perfect cup for the collector of Alaskana or anyone who would like to feature a cheerful spot of pink flowers.
