To describe this wonderful set, I can't do better than the experts at Sotheby's, who described this very cup and saucer in 1979 for their sale of the Milburn Collection, lot 151. "Meissen Green Watteau teacup and Saucer c1745, each piece painted with a gentleman making advances toward his sweetheart in a park setting, the rim with a delicate gilt scrollwork border and the cup painted in the center and around the handle with green floral sprigs, crossed swords mark in underglaze blue, the cup with numeral 14 and the saucer with letter Z, the cup with impressed numeral 66 and the saucer with impressed numeral 4." It was also offered at Christie's on April 27, 1984, lot 161: "A Meissen (Grunes Watteau) teacup and saucer, blue crossed swords mark, pressnumer 54, circa 1745. Painted in green enamel and flesh tints with courtly figures in landscape vignettes, the borders with gilt scroll pattern." What more is there to say? Just this: the set is in excellent condition.
