This porcelain tea cup and saucer was produced in France by a Paris decorator in the mid-19th century. The type of porcelain and style of decoration are indicative of Paris Porcelain. The saucer has a diameter of 5 5/8 inches and the cup is 3 3/8 inches high. The cup and saucer are molded into panels, giving the saucer ribs and the cup its shape. These panels divide the decoration into scenic segments and ornamental segments. There are buildings, bridges and trees done in a Chinoiserie stylized manner. In the design, you can see little figures in the windows or out fishing. The rims and handle are trimmed with gold. Inside the cup, at the bottom, is a beautiful gilded medallion.
Condition: There are touches of wear to the gilding on the rims of both pieces and inside the well of the saucer.
