We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a CHARMING MINIATURE ANTIQUE PORCELAIN CUP WITH PORTRAIT OF LITTLE SISTERS!
Whether you are a collector of antique miniature porcelain PORTRAIT PIECES, or wanting the perfect DOLL ACCESSORY to display with antique dolls, your FAVORITE BEBE would be THRILLED to have this ENCHANTING mug at their next tea party!
The cup is made of white EMBOSSED PORCELAIN and features a cameo portrait of a pair of sweet VICTORIAN GIRLS appearing to be sisters , one wearing a long green dress and the other purple, and each holding a HAND FAN, one in pink and the other in blue! Although the portrait is done by transfer, the workmanship is just lovely with AMAZING DETAIL! The cup measures a DIMINUTIVE 3" tall, 3 1/2" wide including it's decorative molded SCALLOPED HANDLE, with the cup opening measuring 2 5/8" across! Possibly originally intended as a BABY CUP many years ago, or could be a lone mug from a doll's tea set; in either case it could definitely stand on its own merit! The piece is not marked, but most likely of German origin circa late 1800's, and with the exception of an old repair to the handle there are no other apparent chips, repairs or restorations!
For scale purposes we have showcased this sweet little miniature with our 13" antique French Fashion doll, but you could also display it with a larger size Poupee or Bebe-------the possibilities are ENDLESS to showcase this charming little miniature!
This CHARMING MINIATURE ANTIQUE PORCELAIN CUP WITH PORTRAIT OF LITTLE SISTERS is being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane for your buying consideration-----------a DARLING little mug!
Any doll or accessory items used for display are not included in this offering, unless otherwise specified.
