This uncommon and high quality cup and saucer was produced by Minton during the early 19th century, circa 1827. The cup is of French shape and features a large loop handle. The exterior of the cup features three groupings of flowers in vibrant pink, yellow and blue. The interior of the cup features two expertly hand painted floral scenes with c scroll and seaweed gilt boarders on a rich cobalt blue ground. The matching saucer features three large floral scenes with tulips and roses and dark cobalt blue ground.
