Hand Painted Blue Cup And Saucer Artistan Violets Forget Me Nots 1971
This is a pretty hand painted cup and saucer with a design of hand painted Violets or Forget Me Nots and burnished gold trim handle painted by an artisan on a blank cup and saucer which is probably French or German dated 1971.
Painting on china purchased as a white "blank" and painted in the US or England by a cottage artist was a popular pastime by genteel ladies from the Victorian age through the 1980s.
The embossed porcelain cup with burnished gold fancy handle measures 2 inches high by 3.75 inches in diameter, and the saucer measures 5.75 inches in diameter.
The pretty porcelain hand painted artisan cup and saucer is in excellent used vintage condition with no chips or cracks, and only very minor gold wear.
The artist has signed both pieces in gold and it reads "Hand painted by Rose Holman (?) 1971 USA".
A lovely addition to a tea table or teacup collection.
