Vintage Set Of 2 Demitasse Tea Cup & Saucer Set Lustre Iridescent Pearl W/ Gold :
Vintage set of 2 small, unmarked porcelain tea cup/demitasse/espresso cup & saucer sets. An awesome estate sale find! The design is a pearlized, lustreware type of iridescent or mother of pearl coloring with gold striping detail and gold handles. These are in very good condition for their age, I estimate them to be mid-century. There is a little wear on the gold on one of the handles, as pictured. Very little wear on the gold on the rest of the design on either cup. There is a small ripple in the porcelain inside one of the cups which you can see in the picture. I have felt it and it is definitely not a crack, doesn't go through to the outside of the cup at all - it definitely feels like a ripple that happened before the glazing process.
