DESCRIPTION: From St. Petersburg, Russia, this vintage TeaCup and Saucer set is brilliant in its simplicity.
On pristine white porcelain, the pattern of this vintage cup and saucer set is outstanding. The handpainted design is highly decorative with a contemporary flair that achieved outstanding results.
Decorated in three primary colors of red, blue and green, the design is further accented with 22 karat gold embellishments. Made of hard-paste fine porcelain, the transparency of this cup and saucer set is shown in photograph.
The slender cup features a unique center-placed handle and 1-1/4” fluted upper. The matching saucer is slightly upswept and completes the design when placed together.
WHY I LIKE IT: This piece is perfectly suited for tea or coffee with a design that mixes well with your most contemporary tableware or china.
