This charming gold decorated "Remember Me" mustache cup and saucer was made in Germany. A spray of daisy-like flowers stretches across the front of the cup in gold, with the words “Remember Me” in Old English lettering also in gold beneath. The handle and the rims of both pieces are gold trimmed.

The cup is 3-1/4 inches in diameter, 4-1/4 with the handle, and 3-inches tall. The matching saucer is 5-5/8 inches in diameter.

The sturdy cup or mug is stamped in red "Made in Germany." The saucer is not marked.

Mustache cups were made from about 1860 to accommodate the fashionable handlebar mustaches of the time and keep them out of the drink and dry. The mark on this one dates it to circa 1890-1900.

There is a tiny 2-mm edge nick near the mustache ledge and a darkened glaze pop on the back. There are also stains on the foot as though it was set on a hot surface. There is also normal wear consistent with age on both pieces.
