This porcelain chocolate cup and saucer was produced in France by Jean Pouyat Limoges
around 1900. It was sold “white ware” to a studio artist for decoration. The saucer has a diameter of 4 1/2 inches. The cup is 2 7/8 inches high with a diameter of 2 3/8 inches. The set is made of fine, translucent porcelain. The cup features an ornate handle. The hand painting
is beautifully executed. The roses and foliage fill the space on both pieces, with shading and balance. The borders are accented with magenta red and rococo scrolls of pink and gold. The rims and handle are trimmed with gold.
