This is a lovely set of 6 Limoges bouillon double-handled cups and saucers. The white blanks are generously decorated with gold. The saucers which measure 5 1/4" across have a gold center ring and wide gold band edge; the double-handled cups which measure 3 3/4" across and 1 3/4" in height have a gold base ring, graceful gold handles and wide gold band edge. Made for the purpose of serving cream soups or bouillon, these are somewhat smaller in size than the average sets on today's market and would serve nicely for fresh fruits, puddings or custards. Simple, plain and yet very elegant for your table. Each piece is stamped in green "T & V Limoges France", circa 1892-1907. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
