for the set of Eight

Set of 8 (eight) Hermes Breakfast cups with saucers in the "Toucans" pattern.

These cups were made by Moustiers France for Hermes, in their famous faience ware. This redware pottery is heavier than the Limoges porcelain in which this pattern is usually found. The Moustiers ware is less common as fewer pieces were made due their being handmade, with a raised design rather than the flat design on the Limoges.

The cups are large and hold 13 ounces (384.5 ml) of liquid. This cup is large enough to serve your breakfast cereal in!

The cups measure 4 3/4 inches (12.1 cm) in diameter, and are 3 inches (7.6 cm) tall. The saucer is 7 3/8 inches (18.7 cm) in diameter.

Seven (7) cup and saucer sets are perfect, with no chips or cracks in either the cup or saucer, the eighth cup and saucer set has a small chip in the rim of the cup (see photos).
