We are offering a fine pair of cup & saucer sets by Rosehthal. The colors used in these pieces is shades of moss green or puce on a white background. Both cups have the same view although the saucers feature two different views. The scenes feature castles with tall towers. One saucer has more of a wooded scene while the other has a lake view. Both cups have the lake view on one side and a small house in the woods on the other side.
The saucers are scalloped around the rim and they are embossed with a design at the edge. The cups have a scalloped base and a vine style handle. The cups are slightly ribbed.
All pieces have the crossed swords with crown above and the letters "R." and "C.". This is the mark of Rosenthal. Underneath is the name: "MONBIJOU" which we believe to be the pattern. The words: "Rheingold Germany" appears in gold letters on both plates and one of the cups.
Each saucer measures approximately 5-3/4" in diameter. Each cup measures approximately 2-7/8" in diameter x 2" H. The set of two is in very good condition.
