Hand painted porcelain is so beautiful no matter if done in a factory, professional decorating studio or a small home-studio environment. The overall quality is what really matters. This lovely cup & saucer set was the product of a home-studio.
This hand painted cup and saucer is decorated with variegated pink wild rose blossoms nestled among shaded green leaves and bursting rose blossom buds. The background is a rich yellow, tan hues with light to medium brown and blue/green highlights. The edges both pieces is medium blue with gold swag decoration and gold cup handle. The saucer measures 5 1/2" across and the cup measures 3" across and 2 5/8" in height. Both pieces are stamped "O & E G Royal Austria" which identifies the Oscar & Edgar Gutherz Porcelain Company from Alt-Kohlaw, Austria, circa 1889 - 1918. The base of the cup is artist signed "A. Dallyn". There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Lovely.
