This is a set of four elegant French Limoges fine china porcelain bouillon cups and saucers. The maker is Haviland & Co. The date is circa 1894 to 1930.

The bouillon cup has two handles and is used when serving a multiple course meal, specifically for the soup course, and typically for a flavored broth or light soup. However, today, these elegant cups are in demand by people with medical disabilities who need two hands to drink from a cup, and the two handles makes it easy for them to drink tea and coffee and other liquids.

Each cup is 1 7/8” by 3 5/8” and 5” from handle-to-hande. Each saucer has a diameter of 5 3/8”.

The pattern is quite elegant with lots of gold. Each piece has regular intervals of green glaze. Over the green glaze is an applied pattern in gold of leaves, with additional flourishes in gold over the white glaze. More leaves and stems in gold are applied over the white glaze.

The pattern is also inside each cup. The rims, handles and edges are trimmed in gold.

There are no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing. There is no obvious gold wear.

The green underglaze mark is Haviland France. The red overglaze factory decorating mark is Haviland & Co Limoges.
