This old porcelain cup and saucer set is beautifully decorated as a petaled flower. Both pieces are embossed with the petal design and hand painted with a lovely combination of colors. The petals are a pale salmon with ivory tips accented with a deep rust and two-toned green leaves. The cup has the addition of yellow mustard accents and both pieces are enhanced with gold trim including the handle of the cup. On the bottom of both pieces it is stamped; Manufactured Germany. They are both also identified with the hand painted information; 1538 II - 9231 (and an additional mark I am unable to decipher).
The saucer measures about 5 1/2” in diameter and the cup measures about 3 3/8” in diameter excluding the handle and about 2 5/8” high. Both pieces are in good condition with minor wear to the paint on the saucer and the gold on the inner edge of the cup. There are no chips or cracks.
