Here we have for sale an exquisite Haviland, Limoges Demitasse cup and saucer. The green under glaze mark on the pieces is H & Co L dating both pieces to 1876-1889. This set is of the finest china, beautifully hand painted with the most delicate blue flowers and fabulous scrolls of gold. The handle is completely covered in gold with very little wear to the finish. On the underside of the set there is the makers mark as well as an inscription “M. Ware Oct 3rd anniversary“, with a date, I think, is 1891. The cup measures, 2-1/4 inches and is 2-1/8 inches across, and has some wear to the gold on the inside and on edging of the cup. The saucer is flat (wonderful for using as a separate dish) measures, 4-1/4 inches across, and has gold trim with very little wear. This is a very special set, and in wonderful condition considering it is one hundred and twenty six years old.
