This demitasse cup and saucer was produced in Italy by Capodimonte before 1900. The saucer measures 4 1/2 inches in diameter and the cup is 2 1/4 inches high. The decoration is molded into the cup and saucer to give it a three dimensional effect. There is a scene of classical figures drinking and frolicking that wraps around the whole cup. They are all hand painted. The saucer has cherubs with ribbons and garland which are also hand painted. There are gilded flowers dotting the inside of the cup. Both the rim of the cup and the saucer are trimmed with gold. A small defect occurred on the rim of the cup which appears to be a chip that was glazed over in the factory. This demitasse cup and saucer is in excellent condition.
