Minton Rose Demitasse Cup and Saucer Date Marked 1888
Minton used the hallmark that is on this cup and saucer from 1873 until 1912 but there is also a date mark, a triangle with a dot in the center, that designates that this set was made in 1888.
It's nice to know that something so delicate has existed this long without any chips cracks or blemishes. Would you use it to sip coffee or would you display it and admire its beauty?
The cup is 2" tall and 2 1/4" in diameter. The saucer is 4 1/4" in diameter. Both are beautifully sheer! There is an ever so tiny a flea bite on the rim...I didn't even notice it until I looked at my pictures. I have adjusted the price accordingly!
