This is truly a gem, I can’t imagine it surviving all these years! The porcelain which this cup is made of is so translucent! The edges of the saucer are done in a soft beige background and have a raised relief design of basket weave. The inner portion of the saucer is a flower shape with a white background and blue forget-me-not and burgundy flowers mixed with green leaves and connected by vines. A soft green background surrounds the floral groupings. A gold outline was once around the flower shape but has long ago been worn off. The lower portion of the cup is done in the beige basket weave and the upper portion has the floral design. A thin gold ring separates the two backgrounds. Gold accents have been applied to the delicate handle. There are no hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
