Antique Signed Hand Painted Large Porcelain Breakfast Cup & Saucer
We are very pleased to offer a wonderful over-sized porcelain cup and saucer set made by Rosenthal. This beautiful set is all hand painted and decorated. The set is a breakfast cup and saucer, which came into vogue in the nineteenth century when coffee drinking became popular.
Both pieces have the mark of Rosenthal on the undersides as well as "MADE IN GERMANY" and dates the set circa 1891-1906. The pattern is quite lovely and features small pink and yellow flowers with small leaf clusters in a repeating pattern. There is a raised shell design near the rim as well. Both pieces are trimmed in gold.
The saucer measures approximately 6-1/2" in diameter and the cup measures approximately 2-1/2"H x 4-1/8" in diameter (handle excluded). The set is in very good condition with minor wear noted to some of the gold trim.
