An antique cream soup cup and saucer set that features a double portrait decoration on the cup. On one side we see a beautiful woman with long flowing blonde hair. The reverse side of the cup shows us another beautiful woman with long flowing dark hair. The coloring behind each portrait is a pale yellow that fades to a forest green at the bottom. The same background colors can be seen on the matching saucer. The design is finished off with a pretty gold foil decoration.
Both cup and matching saucer were manufactured by the Rosenthal Factory with the hallmark telling us this is c. 1890s.
The cup measures 5 inches wide handle to handle with a 3 5/8 inch opening and stands just over 2 inches high. The saucer is just over 5 inches in diameter. You'll see a bit of wear to the gold on the handles and rim due to age. We find a few flakes of the very base of the cup. We have priced this accordingly.
