Lovely French Limoges porcelain double handled cup for condiments or creams with heavy embossed fleur de lis gold rim and garland of petite flowers around the rim, the matching holding plate with repeated pattern.
The little cup measures 4 1/4" across the top and 1 3/4" high, the accompanying plate is 5 1/4" across and has a lip of about 1".
In excellent antique condition without any issues, just a bit of typical wear around the bottom rim and a little gilding off the interior band of the plate, very minimal.
This very special Limoges is stamped France M DE M LIMOGES but it is also SIGNED by M de Mavaleix Limoges, for the shop A Stouell & Co. Inc, Boston.
A very rare French porcelain, as the old adage goes, good things come in small packages!!
Circa early 1900s, French in origin.
