A rare and exquisite cup and saucer by Helena Wolfsohn in her classical scenes alternating19th Century styling. A four panel Watteau like classical scenes alternating design gives way to fine delicately designed gold gilt dividers. Her love of wonderful colors and intricate work is evident in the 2 beautiful courting scened panels of these pieces. The other 2 panels have a deep cobalt blue background with golden flowers painted upon them. The overall condition is very good, with just slight gold wear; please see pictures.
