This porcelain tea cup with lid and saucer was produced in Germany by the Royal Porcelain Manufactory of Berlin, c. 1870s. The saucer has a diameter of 5 1/4 inches and is 1 inch deep. The cup is 3 1/4 inches high including the lid. The set is made of fine white hard paste porcelain. The decoration is inspired by Japanese design. The lid has an applied flower bud and stem for its finial. The decoration is monochrome with tones of magenta. The flowers are placed off center in clusters and sprigs, very much like some designs used by Meissen. The rims are trimmed with chocolate brown enamel. It is quite rare to come across this type of cup and saucer with its lid intact.
