An antique cream soup cup and saucer set featuring a double portrait decoration on the cup. On one side we see a beautiful woman with long flowing blonde hair and the reverse side of the cup shows us another beautiful woman with long flowing dark hair. The coloring behind each portrait is a pale yellow that fades to a forest green at the bottom. The same background colors can be seen on the matching saucer. The design is finished off with a nice gold foil decoration.
Manufactured by the Rosenthal Factory with the hallmark telling us this is c. 1890s to just about the turn of the 20th century.
The cup measures 5" across handle to handle with a 3.625" opening and is 2.125" high. The saucer is 5.125" diameter. You'll see a bit of wear to the gold on the handles and rim due to age. We find a few flakes of the very base of the cup. We have priced this accordingly.
