This is a French Old Paris children’s size sugar with a matching tiny cup and saucer. The date is the 19th century, circa 1870 to 1890.
There is one sugar with a lid, two saucers, and one cup.
The sugar is about 2 1/4” high to the top of the finial, and about 3½” wide from handle-to-handle. There is a face or head on each side that is part of the blank. The finial is a round knob. The sugar has a small chip on the edge of the mouth, and I show both sides of the chip in photos.
The cup is about 1 7/8” high to the top of the rim, about 2 ½” high to the top of the handle, and about 2 1/8” wide at the mouth. There are glaze discolorations and rough spots on the inside of the cup, which can be seen in an overhead photo.
The saucers are about 3” wide, about the same size as a butter pat chip, except with a cup well in the middle.
The sugar and cup are smaller than demitasse size.
The decoration is hand painted, gold leaves with blue dots that represent berries or flowers.
There are no maker’s marks.
There is minimal wear to the gold. There are no other chips, cracks or crazing.
