Antique chocolate cup and saucer set decorated with dainty pink flowers with hand painted enameling. The Victorian mold flares up towards the scalloped rim. The flowers wrap gently around the back of the cup and two areas of the saucer.
The Germany mark on the bottom of both pieces indicates late 19th Century for a manufacturing date; c. 1890s.
The cup measures 2 7/8 inches tall and the saucer is 4 3/8 inches diameter. We could not detect any damage to the porcelain. The gold does show age related wear but that is to be expected and is quite minimal for its age.
