This porcelain tea cup and saucer was produced in Germany at the Carl Thieme Dresden Studio in the late 19th century. The saucer has a diameter of 5 inches and the cup is 2 inches high. The set is made of fine, translucent porcelain. The cup features 3 lion’s paw feet. The set is beautifully hand painted with vibrant colors. The couples dressed in 18th century costumes enjoy the garden landscapes in various activities. There are lovely sprays of realistic flowers between the scenes. Delicate filigree gilding trims the rims of both pieces. The handle and feet are accented with gold.
Condition: There is a slight touch of wear to the gilding on the rim of the cup that is hardly noticeable. It is in otherwise excellent condition.
