Fancy Pink Luster Victorian Souvenir Mug Raised Gold Flower 1890s Copper Luster
This is an antique Victorian German made souvenir pink, gold and copper luster cup or mug made for the English market between 1890-1900 with raised dimensional flower and leaves and heavy hand painted gold trim.
The mug measures 3 inches high by 3.5 inches in diameter and is in very good +++ condition with no chips or cracks, but there is quite a bit of gold wear.
The fancy souvenir cup or mug is marked on the bottom in a circle Germany.
These 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, but that is blank on this one.
There is gold wear which is pretty normal for something of this age.
