We're offering this sweet Rosenthal Selb demitasse of eggshell porcelain with a bouquet of delicate flowers, in the Sanssouci pattern. All surfaces are shining white except for the inside of the cup which is ivory. Scrollwork to the cup and the saucer is enhanced by the flowers; both cup and saucer are trimmed with unusual and striking edging of very pale gray-green. The edge of the saucer is scalloped. Also unusual is an understated pattern of latticework on both pieces. Cup is 1 9/16" high and 4 7/8" across the top. The saucer is 4 7/8" across; 5/8" high. Marked under the glaze on both pieces, in green: Rosenthal with crossed swords and crown over Selb, Germany and Sanssouci. The mark dates to 1939 – 1956. This charming demitasse is flawless with no chips, stains, cracks or crazing. Sweet and lovely.
