Here is a sweet and very desirable coffee cup made by the imperial porcelain factory in Vienna. It has the number 33 on the bottom, dating it to 1833. I suspected this cup was Vienna because of the handle, and when I took the paper label off the bottom I found the factory's early scepter mark. (I saved the label and will include it because it shows some of the history of the piece.) It is in excellent condition, with only minimal wear to the bottom gilt band, hard to see. One tiny sprig painted inside the cup hides a kiln flaw in the standard way (but you can still feel it). The Vienna scepter on the underside has a blue painter’s mark above it. It is about three and a half inches high. Super nice.
A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
