This porcelain chocolate cup and saucer was produced in Germany by the Richard Klemm Dresden Studio in the 1890s. The saucer measures 6 inches in diameter and the cup is 4 inches high. The cup has a pedestal base and the saucer is contoured with a raised well in the center. The saucer is a platform for the cup. The ground color is blue green. There are tiny pink rose garlands around the saucer and cup. The front of the cup has a reserve containing a portrait of Queen Louise of Prussia who lived in the 1700s. There is a shiny gold frame around the portrait. The green ground is accented with raised gilding giving texture to those areas. I have heard this treatment referred to as “tree bark”. The rims and handle are all heavily gilded. The workmanship is very similar to pieces from Royal Vienna.
Condition : Excellent
