This porcelain cup and saucer was produced in Switzerland by Nyon between 1781 and 1813. There is a barely visible green fish under glaze on the bottom of the cup. The saucer has a diameter of 4 3/4 inches and is 1 inch deep. The cup is 2 1/2 inches high. It appears to be a coffee size cup. The cup features a fancy loop handle. The set has a deep cobalt blue ground color. There is a charming hand painted scene of a mill in a landscape by a river. The painting is done with fine detail. The sides of the cup have elaborate gilded decoration. The saucer has gilded accents and trim. The interior of the cup is gilded down to the bottom. This is a splendid and rare example of Nyon porcelain. Condition: There is slight wear to the gilding in the well of the saucer. It is in otherwise excellent condition for its age
