This rare set of six porcelain hand painted demitasse cups and saucers was recently acquired from a Southern estate. The pattern is Moss Rose and produced in Japan in the 1950's. While the Moss Rose pattern is easily found, this design with the spattered/sponged gold background is hard to find, and to find this many in a demitasse set is rare indeed!
CONSIGNMENT - NO FURTHER DISCOUNT
The gently scalloped saucers are rimmed in gold and are 4 1/2" across. The scalloped footed cups are edged in gold and the golden handles are incredibly beautiful. The cups are 2 1/2" across the top and 2 1/4" tall. All the pieces feature the delicate pink roses of the popular pattern.
This rare set would be a lovely gift for the collector of this pattern, 50's porcelain or demitasse sets and the condition is excellent!
