A delicate porcelain chocolate cup and saucer set featuring hand applied gold decoration. There are small small leaves and berries near the applied handle that are also hand painted. The rims on each piece have a nice factory applied gold filigree.
The hallmarks tell us that this was manufactured and decorated by A. Lanternier in Limoges, France and date to c. 1891.
The cup measures 3 inches high and saucer 4 3/4 inches in diameter. We find just a bit of gold wear to this set but no damage to porcelain. Look for the matching chocolate pot from this same factory in our inventory. We currently have two sets available and do combine shipping.
