Grape Leaves and vines adorn the surfaces of this charming demitasse (or demi tasse) set. The tall narrow cup rests on four gold enamel feet and sports a handle that curves high above the rim and gracefully scrolls inward. The handle and the inside rim of the cup are trimmed in gold as is the rim of the lovely saucer. Both pieces bear the handsome grape transfer motif.
Underside of cup marked in silver underglaze with a crown / Hacklefors / Porslin / Sweden / 17. The saucer bears only 17 in silver.
Both pieces in excellent condition with no chips, scratches, cracks or crazing. A bit of darkening to gold on cup’s inner rim close to handle. A nearly perfect vintage demitasse set, tastefully decorated and festive!
We have recently acquired a marvelous estate collection of cups and saucers - mostly demitasse, espresso, and chocolate cups - and will be listing them in small batches over the next few weeks. This is an eclectic collection, with one common element: they were all chosen as pieces of exceptional quality and taste. Included you will find sets for all budgets, from Herend to Haviland, Aynsley to Copeland Spode.
Cups and saucers - especially the diminutive demitasse - make a wonderful Christmas present for someone special. If you're interested in a particular maker or style you don't see, please email us, and we may have it on hand.
Antique and vintage porcelain, pottery, glass, collectibles and, of course, knick-knacks too!
