Offered at a huge savings due to very minor imperfections, these rare eggshell porcelain cups and saucers are museum quality. Neither is marked, dating from pre 1890, circa 1870-1880s. The full relief of the pretty flower garland on the little demitasse cup with its figural floral handle and dainty feet is absolutely exquisite. There is one very tiny chip in the ruby hand painted under lip of one drape area, otherwise superb condition. The origin is Germany and the shapes are early Prussia.
elegantly tall, the other tea cup is brilliantly gold with a figural floral handle and a beautifully hand painted relief pansy boldly flowing around the bowl. It is finished with the same style fancy scallop feet. It has one rim chip that was gilded in at some time a long time ago as pictured. Both have their matching saucers.
