DESCRIPTION: This Cup & Saucer Set is of a bold design enhanced with gold overglaze details that include moriage-like flower details and leaf accents. Large white calla lilies lie on a fantastic shade of mauve color. The cup exterior is white with shiny glaze and gold trim. The flared cup is footed and scalloped with a ‘broken loop’ handle. The matching scalloped saucer is also trimmed in gold. A fun piece!
