Guest Book

This porcelain and silver overlay demitasse cup and saucer was produced in France in the late 19th century. We are unfamiliar with the mark and cannot identify the factory specifically. The saucer has a diameter of 4 5/8 inches and the cup is 2 1/8 inches high. The cup features a unique handle. The porcelain is thin and translucent. The ground color is pale yellow. There are several reserves on each piece containing tiny hand painted flowers in pastel colors. Almost the entire surface of both pieces is overlaid with chased silver. The detail on this cup and saucer is superb. If you collect silver overlay cups and saucers this one is a “must have.” Condition: Excellent
