Hand Painted Dresden Flower Porcelain Chocolate Cup & Saucer - Thieme
Decidedly delicious and opulently decorated by hand using brilliant colour choices and topped off with real gold gilding and jeweling and reticulated sections on the saucer....
What a cup and saucer!
Thieme's manufactory has been producing these "over the top" styles of porcelain tableware for a long time. They are STILL producing wonderful porcelain at their location in Dresden, Germany. This style cup and saucer are pictured on page 41 of their 2009 catalogue and they priced it at $681.00. The 2 major differences, however, is that their current saucer is not reticulated (it would cost more) and the cup doesn't begin to have as much decoration and not nearly as much gilding. Still....think about it.....nearly $700 to order it fresh from Dresden!
By the way, did you notice our complete chocolate set with pot and four cups & saucers?
Lovely condition, no chips, nicks or hairlines. We did note one tiny miss with the tip of a brush (black spot) on the center of the saucer. Usually the artists make these into teeny sprigs, but they missed this one!
Cup 3.25 " tall (8.3 cm) Saucer diameter 5.5" (14 cm)
