Cup and saucer presented by Mr von Quast to his friend Mr von Laffert in 1837. The archives of the German nobility tell us that the wife of Hermann von Quast was born Laffert, and so Mr von Laffert was probably the giver’s brother-in-law. The saucer with inscription: H. v. Quast seinem H. v. Laffert d. 13t Januar 1837. The archives also state that January 13 was Hermann von Laffert’s birthday. On the cup, surrounded by grape vines and flowers: Heiter sei Dein Leben (May your Life be Joyous). Height "3/ 7,5 cm, diameter of saucer "6/ 15,5 cm. Condition: fine.
