An antique porcelain Christmas chocolate cup and saucer featuring a holly decoration. The holly leaves and berries are a transfer print against a delicate white background. We see lavish gold accents on the rims and handle of cup which were hand applied.
The hallmarks of A. Lanternier help us date this set to just around the turn of the 20th Century; c. 1900.
Measuring both we find the cup at 3 inches tall and a 2 1/2 inch opening at the rim. The saucer is just over 5 inches in diameter. With just a bit of age related wear to the decoration, we would say both pieces are in fine antique condition. Perfect for your Christmas and holiday decorating.
