Vintage Czech Coffee Cup Gold Trim Bartered Bride Scene Union K Czechoslovakia:
Vintage Czech Coffee Cup with a wide band of gold trim around the top and narrow bands of gold on the handle, around the bottom and around the painted scene. The colorful village scene is from the Czech opera The Bartered Bride and shows buildings and several people in colorful dress. The words in the scene are "Staniz se tedy, staniz se Dam vam sve pozehnani." The mark on the bottom is Union K Czechoslovakia with a symbol. There is a number 5 also with letters that I cannot make out. Please see photos showing line of crazing on the bottom inside and bottom outside. There is small dark mark on the top of the handle and beside the handle as shown in photos. Bottom shows some wear around the edge where the cup touches the table. I believe this is quite old and consider it to be in good condition.
