Outstanding Germany Portrait Mustache Cup & Saucer of German Emperor Kaiser Wilhelm II
Wilhelm II (Frederick William Victor Albert of Prussia; 27 January 1859 – 4 June 1941) was the last German Emperor (Kaiser) and King of Prussia, ruling the German Empire and the Kingdom of Prussia from 15 June 1888 to 9 November 1918. He was the eldest grandchild of the British Queen Victoria and related to many monarchs and princes of Europe.
Crowned in 1888, he dismissed the Chancellor, Otto von Bismarck, in 1890 and launched Germany on a bellicose "New Course" in foreign affairs that culminated in his support for Austria-Hungary in the crisis of July 1914 that led in a matter of days to the First World War. Bombastic and impetuous, he sometimes made tactless pronouncements on sensitive topics without consulting his ministers, culminating in a disastrous Daily Telegraph interview in 1908 that cost him most of his influence. His top generals, Paul von Hindenburg and Erich Ludendorff, dictated policy during the First World War with little regard for the civilian government. An ineffective war-time leader, he lost the support of the army, abdicated in November 1918, and fled to exile in the Netherlands. Gold accenting graces to the rim, as well as accenting the flowers & leaves.
This is a wonderful example of a Germany Portrait Mustache Cup & Saucer.
The outstanding German piece, which measures: Cup: 4-3/4" wide from outer handle to outer rim & 3-1/2" tall & Saucer: 6" wide, has been exceptionally decorated with a Portrait Bust of Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany. The Portrait sets against a pink background with raised & blown out flowers gracing each side of the Portrait.
The beautiful German Portrait Mustache Cup & Saucer is in excellent condition & totally free of chips, cracks, or other damage with the gold also being excellent.
