A Present Pink Luster Victorian Souvenir Cup And Saucer Raised Gold Flower 1890s Copper Luster
This is an antique Victorian German made souvenir pink, gold and copper luster cup and saucer made for the English market between 1890-1900 with raised dimensional flower and leaves and heavy hand painted gold trim and the words A Present in gold metallic Gothic script.
The porcelain cup measures 2.5 inches high and the saucer measures 4.5 inches in diameter which puts it in the demitasse size range.
The pink copper luster cup and saucer is in very good +++ condition with no chips or cracks, but there is quite a bit of gold wear and wear as seen on the saucer.
The fancy souvenir cup or mug is marked on the bottom Made In Germany.
These teacups and mugs were used as souvenirs at resorts, gifts, "fairings" or prizes at fairs or carnivals, and were extremely popular during the Victorian era. There is a blank white leaf where you could have a name, location or message hand written in gold as this one has A present hand written.
There is extensive gold wear which is pretty normal for something of this age.
