A rare demitasse set featuring dreamy portraits of Victorian era ladies. The tray has one large center portrait and four smaller portrait vignettes at the corners. Both pot and creamer have portraits as well, and all have hand-painted details. Each cup features a small courting scene. Every piece has rich, deep red and green bands overlaid with extensive gilding throughout. All pieces have the Royal Vienna Beehive mark, also present is the Moritz Zdekauer mark.
Condition is great, with no chips, cracks or hairlines. Light wear to the gilding commensurate with age.
Austria, ca 1890
