Beautiful and rare, this is a Mottahedeh Historic Charleston Reproductions cup and saucer set in their Sacred Bird and Butterfly pattern.

This pattern has also been seen on the table during the family dinners on the TV show "Blue Bloods", starring Tom Selleck.
The cup is 4 inches wide including the handle and about 2.5 inches tall. The saucer is 5.5 inches wide.
The set was made by Vista Alegre of Portugal.
