This is a pair of 19th century hard paste porcelain French Old Paris cups and saucers, hand painted with rural scenes, one cup featuring a female and the second featuring a male. The date is circa 1850.

The cup is 2 5/8" by 2 7/8". The saucer is a sipper, designed for slurping tea or coffee that spills out from the cup and it is 5" by 1 1/8", and thus it has some depth to it.

The scene on the front of one cup is a French female, probably a farm wife, standing with a tree to the left and a tree to the right. The scene on the face of the saucer is a tree. The matching cup shows the husband in the same scene, the male farmer, and the scene on the face of the saucer is a tree.

There is gold trim around the edges and on the handle. There is wear to the gold trim, mostly on the interior rim of the cup and the handle of the cup featuring the male farmer.

I can see my fingers through the porcelain when I hold the cups up to the light.

There are ash flecks and glaze marks due to the firing process. One saucer has an edge abrasion to the glaze, not a chip, just a rough spot in the glaze. There are no chips, cracks or crazing.

The pieces are unmarked as to any maker.
