ANTIQUE PINK LUSTER MERRY Christmas CUP & SAUCER SET
Wonderful antique porcelain children's Christmas cup and saucer set - cup measures 2-1/3" tall and 2-1/2" wideand saucer measures 4-7/8" wide. Decorated with pinky/violet luster borders,cup bears a charming transferware image of Father Christmas in long robe holding atree in one arm and packages in the other -- banner sentiment in ornate lettering is 'MERRY Christmas' and a winged cherub blowing a long horn accents the other side of the banner - image is iconic and beautifully finished in gold. Cup is faintly marked MADE IN GERMANY and saucer is stamped SILESIA. Dating first part of the 1900s, condition is excellent with no chips, cracks,repairs, discoloration or damage - the saucer color is flashing a bit more violet than the cup but they are a set as far as I can tell - these belonged to my Grandmother who had a large collection or the pink luster Christmas pieces - I dusted this for years and can at least date it to the 1940s as being a set. Dainty and sweet, it would be a wonderful addition to any Christmas display or collection! As shown with more of my collection listed separately.
