This is a set of four French Haviland & Co Limoges hard paste porcelain cups. The date is circa 1876 to 1880. There are no saucers; cups only.
Each cup is 2 5/8” by 3”. The rims and handles are timed in blue enamel.
The front of each cup has a pretty flower spray. The backs have a smaller spray. One cup has a pretty pink rose.
The pattern is a transfer, but different on each cup, because the decorator at Haviland was working from a series of flowers, so lots of transfers to choose from, and the selection of transfers would have been the decorator’s choice; thus each cup is decorated uniquely.
The green underglaze mark is H&Co. The black overglaze factory decorating mark is Haviland & Co Limoges inside a double circle.
There are no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing, other than a pinprick in the blue enamel on the rim of one cup, which might have been a color skip in the decorating process.
