Here we have a very old, very lovely translucent porcelain demitasse set made and decorated by the Haviland Pottery of Limoges. Both pieces are adorned with delicate pink apple blossoms on wispy stems. The cup boasts blossoms on both the inner and outer walls and touches of gold enamel to the little sculpted handle. There are impressed vertical ribs to the cup, a scalloped motif along the top edge and faint impressed images of blossoms and impressed wispy stems. The saucer echoes the scrollwork inside its gently scalloped edges and the pink blossoms and stems are repeated, spilling into the cup well. These are subtle but complex little objects!

Cup measures 2 1/8” in diameter x 2 ¼” tall. The saucer is 4 ¾” wide x 7/8” high with a table ring 3 1/8” wide x ¼” high.

Marks: Green underglaze with H & Co. / L / France (used 1888-1896) and mark in red. Haviland & Co. arching over Limoges (used1889-1931). So this set was made between 1889 and 1896. (Gaston, Limoges, p. 178: mark #11, green; mark #13, red). The green mark signifies that the piece was made by Haviland’s pottery; the (overglaze) red one probably means that it was also decorated there.

Condition is excellent, especially given the age of the set. The only bit of damage of any kind is a tiny chip to the edge of the table ring. There is bit of paint loss from wear to the ornate little cup handle.

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.
