This porcelain chocolate cup and saucer was produced in France in the late 19th century. The blank was manufactured by Tressemann and Vogt Limoges and the decoration was done by an unknown decorator using a spurious Sevres marking. The saucer has a diameter of 5 1/4 inches and the cup is 3 1/4 inches high without the handle. The ground color is deep cobalt blue. The cup features a figural handle in the shape of a peacock. There is a reserve on the front of the cup containing a hand painted scene of lovers in a garden landscape. It is beautifully painted in vibrant colors. The scene is framed in elaborate raised gilding. There are gilded accents and trim on both pieces. The inside of the cup is peach colored. This is a magnificent antique cup and saucer for display. Condition: Excellent
