This porcelain tea cup and saucer was produced in Germany by Meissen around 1750. The saucer has a diameter of 5 inches and is 1 1/2 inches deep. The cup is 2 1/2 inches high and the diameter is 3 1/2 inches. The edges have little points and scallops. The cup has a split twisted branch handle. Both pieces are hand painted with realistic fruit in vibrant colors. There is gold filigree trim on the rims. Condition: Excellent. It is common to have little nicks on the foot rings and some traces of wear to the gilding and paint, especially on 250 year old porcelain. There is nothing that detracts from this rare antique porcelain cup and saucer.
