Lovely antique French sterling silver tea cup & saucer, Classical fluting & crossed ribbon pattern with scrolling handle and wonderful condition! With a French Minerve #1 mark, we know this beautiful cop and saucer are guaranteed to be finest .950/1000 pure silver. About the size of a 19th century China tea cup, rare since the French weren't really known as being tea drinkers. This is not the extra large chocolate cup we sometimes offer, and isn't the other little demitasse or very small cup for espresso. Perfect for your own enjoyment, or to give as a special gift. I've shown the silversmith's mark clearly and it's for Jules Alfred Trenchant, Paris circa 1881-1920. Measurements noted on photos, but the set is about the same size as a fine old English china tea cup.
Very good to excellent condition, I find no dents to mention and no flaws. We would put the date in the Belle Epoque era to as late as 1920, but not later. Yes, the Minerve #1 is on both pieces.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time!
