This absolutely spectacular cup & saucer is heavily gilded with gold paint, making it almost 3 Dimensional. The Cup has pink roses on one side adorned in a gold beaded circle pattern, similar to those of Limoges. The remainder of the cup has beautiful tangerine poppy flowers with green leaves and gold gilding flowing around it. The rim of the cup is layered heavily in gold paint and so is the handle.
There is no mark on the bottom of the cup, but the cup is signed near the handle with: E. The bottom mark dates this set to 1880's - 1914, so my belief is the 87 is for 1887.The saucer has three stunning poppies on it outlined in gold paint and has the EW TURN Vienna Made in Austria Red Mark on the bottom as well as Hand Painted D. The saucer measures 5 7/8" in Diameter and the cup measures 4 1/2" handle to cup, with 3 5/8 in Diameter of the cup itself. The cup measures 2 1/8 H.
This gorgeous set would male an excellent addition to any collection and is one of a kind! A rare find in such excellent condition! There are no chips or cracks to these pieces, some slight fading of the gold paint, but that's it.
