#2848 Limoges Hand Painted Chocolate Cup

Unsigned.  Most likely an American china painter.  Whiteware from AK France (A. Klingenberg), a porcelain factory and decorating studio in Limoges, France;  mark used c.1890's-1910 (Source:  Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain, Third Edition, by Gaston, page 216).  Saucer is 4 7/8" diameterCup is 2 7/8" tall.  A real beauty.  Excellent condition.

#2729 Minton Demicup and Saucer

The closest I can come to dating the Minton mark is possibly c.1891-1902 (Source:  Collectible Cups and Saucers, Book III, Jim and Susan Harran, page 366).  (As to the second mark with the word BIRKS, there was a Birks, Rawlins & Co., and like Minton, was also in business in  Stoke, Staffordshire, England, but I can't find a mark for them even close to this one.)  As to this beautiful set, it is hand painted and hand decorated.  Beautiful cobalt blue background with heavy gold decoration.  Beautiful roses in  ornate cartouches.  Footed cup is 2 3/8" tall x 2 3/4" diameter across top opening.  Saucer is 4 3/8" diameter.  A really gorgeous set!!!  SOLD   $95  March 2006

Item #2729



#2431 Old R. S. Prussia Style Cups

 Unmarked.  We believe these are unmarked R. S. Prussia and very old.  Pretty transfer roses on a light bluish and white background.  Notice the pretty shape of both cup and saucer.  Some slight loss of gold around edges.  One saucer has a very small chip on the underside of the rim -- does not show from the top.  Otherwise, these appear to be in excellent condition.  No other chips, cracks, or crazing.  SOLD   $35  October 2006

#2770 Pink Lustre Demicup

 Unmarked except for a number, but most likely of German origin.  Applied gold decoration.  Slight wear of gold on center ring of saucer.  Gold on one area of cup rim of about 1/2" appears to be a touchup -- not readily noticeable.  A very nice little decorative cup and saucer and priced accordingly.  Saucer is 4 1/4" diameter.  Cup is 2 1/2" tall x 1 7/8" diameter across top opening.  SOLD  $35  July 2006

#2663 Old "Sevres" Style French Demicup and Saucer

This set is obviously very old.  The mark is an overglaze blue mark (partially worn) and is so very similar to a Sevres mark dated 1872-1899 on page 427 of The Directory of European Porcelain by Danckert.  Those marks are referred to as "Republic round" marks.  At the very least, we believe it to be of French origin.  It is entirely hand painted and hand decorated except for the figural portrait which is a transfer.  Both cup and saucer are decorated with hand painted floral medallions, alternating with hand painted gold florals and applied enamel beads.    Even the inside of the cup is painted gold.  Saucer is 4 1/4" diameter.  Footed Cup is 2 1/4" tall x 2 1/8" diameter across top opening.  Excellent condition -- can't find anything wrong with it at all.  SOLD   $55 February 2006

 We can't guarantee  this is Sevres -- only that it is similar.  E-mails are welcome with additional information.

Item #2663


#2180 Footed Teacup

Applied gold beaded decoration.  Unmarked.  Cup is 2 1/4" tall x approximately 2 1/2" across the top.  Saucer is approximately 5" wide at the points. As seen in left side of picture of saucer, one tip is missing from the saucer.  SOLD  $35  February 2006

Item #2180


#2332 Old Footed Pink and White Lustre Cup with Encrusted Flowers

Cup and saucer were purchased at different times, but appear to be a good match.   Heavy gold on inside of bombe-shaped body.  Unmarked, but likely of German origin and possibly from one of the Schlegelmilch factories who produced the popular R. S. Prussia line of products.  One of the three little feet was chipped but has been professionally repaired.  It also has some loss of gold on the beaded trim on the back (see picture).  Otherwise, it is in excellent condition and no doubt VERY OLD.  It is a real beauty.  Saucer is 5 1/2" diameter.  Cup is 2 3/4" tall x 3 1/4" across top opening.   SOLD   8/26/05 $75

#1893 Old OS Germany Hand Painted Footed Teacup

Napoleon portrait is hand painted.  Heavy gold trim.  Gold beaded trim on inside of cup.  Saucer is not marked.  The Beehive mark on the cup is that of Oscar Schlegelmilch of Germany and was put into use around 1892.   A cup and saucer just like this, but in different colors, is shown on page 252 of Gaston's book "Collector's Encyclopedia of R. S. Prussia, Fourth Series."  Suggested value in the book is shown in the range of $175-$225.  We are offering this one for much less because of the repair.   Tea Cup is 1 3/4" tall x 2 7/8" across top.  Amazing cup for its obvious old age.  SOLD   8/26/05   $75

Unmarked, but possibly old R. S. Prussia or related.  Obviously very old.  Pale pink with gold handle, gold on inside of scalloped rim of cup.  Saucer rim is also gold trimmed, although worn.  What makes this cup so special is the wonderful cherub scene, even though in transfer.  Excellent condition for its age.  No chips, cracks, or repairs -- only the slight wear of gold..  Cup is 3 1/8" tall x 3 1/2" diameter across top opening.  Saucer is 6" diameter.  SOLD

Item #2510


#2321 Mitterteich Demicup with Roses

No Saucer.  Even without a saucer, this little cup is pretty enough to stand on its own as a nice decorative item -- would also be perfect for a baby gift!!  Notice the dainty gold feet, gold handle, and gold rim around the top.  Even some of the leaves are in gold.  It is 2 5/16" tall x 1 15/16" across the top opening.  Perfect condition.

#2331 Hand Painted Footed Cup

No Saucer.  This is so pretty that I couldn't resist buying it even though it is missing its saucer.  It is so old that the mark has worn off the bottom -- just traces left, but it is possibly of French origin.  The beautiful roses are hand painted and surrounded with gold beaded designs.  The top rim is delicately scalloped.  Even without the saucer, it is a gorgeous decorative cup.  Perfect condition.

Item #2331 SOLD

#2310 Orlik Germany Dresden Style Footed Teacup

A very pretty Dresden-style footed tea cup set encrusted with flowers.  Footed cup is 2 1/8" tall x 3 1/8" diameter across top opening.  Notice the unusual body shape of the cup.  Scalloped saucer is 5 3/8" diameter.  Both pieces are gold trimmed.  Excellent condition, but not perfect.  Notice the saucer -- the yellow flower at the top is missing a petal.  The red flower at the bottom has a chipped petal.  Still an unusual and beautiful decorative cup and is priced accordingly.

#2263 Limoges Demicup

Blue and Gold.  Notice the very heavy gold trim of this beautiful little cup and saucer.  This set is in excellent condition.  There is a small place on the rim (see picture below) which appears to be in the manufacturing because it is under the gold -- it is only 3/16" of an inch.  The cup is 2 1/4" tall x 2 1/8" across top opening.  Saucer is 4 1/2" diameter.  We have finally found a little information about this mark, but the resources seem to vary as to age.  It is apparently a decorating mark for Prevot Porcelain in Limoges, France.  The Directory of European Porcelain by Danckert says it was used beginning 1979 (page 429 of his newest edition, 2004).  However, the E-Limoges website which we've just discovered  says that is was used as early as 1969 and probably earlier.
