A very delicate old world european porcelain decorated by a frech china painter and signed ,a very high grade ~ highly translucent antique French limoges procelain ~ exquisitely hand painted Limoges demi tasse cup. Decorated with hand sponged gold coin and 3 footed gold coin legs ...a bit of wear to the gold commensurate with age , but the gold coin , being of a more pure blend back then was softer and would wear a tiny bit. Not a crack , nick or chip . Absolute excellent condition for more than 110 years old ....

By the 1870's it had established its own decorating studio in Limoges France which was named "Elite Works" of which this bears the very early Elite mark # 8 the overglaze decoratinf mark validating its origin from Limoges France ca 1891.
