Magnificent European Sterling (800 Fine) Partial Gilt Cup & Saucer- 3.4 Oz:
MAGNIFICENT EUROPEAN STERLING (800 fine) PARTIAL GILT CUP & SAUCER- 3.4 oz
Great Un-Engraved Condition- Gold Wash Highlights & Interior-97 gm
Offered in this sale is a Magnificent European Sterling (800 fine) Cup and Saucer. The Cup is of highly stylized, almost ritual, form, executed in a frosted Silver finish, bright cut and generously gilded in Gold on the interior, blank Cartouche and trim. The Rococo inspired handle is also highlighted in Gold and topped with a very regal, classical ladies’ bust. The bright-cut engraving and Gold highlights are echoed on the original saucer.
A highly unusual and magnificent piece.
SIZE & CONDITION: The Saucer measures just over 4 ½” (11.9 cm) in diameter and the cup is 3 ¾”(9.7 cm) at the tallest point. Together they weigh 3.4 oz (97 g).
The set remains in very good condition with minor wear to the gilding and one noted ding to the rim of the saucer. The foot of the cup is slightly out of round, causing a slight rocking. No splits or repairs and NO MONOGRAMS.
MARKS: The Cup and saucer are both marked “800 M” with a *.
