The cup is 2.28 inches high and the saucer is 1 inch high at the curled twig handle by 5.25 inches long by 4 wide.
The very collectible fine porcelain teacup and saucer were made most likely in the 1890s in Germany.
The sweet little souvenir gift set is in very good +++ used vintage condition with one very small shallow rim chips inside the cup, no cracks and only a bit minor gold trim wear and color wear to the saucer where yhe cup has rested for well over 100 years.
Perfect for a teacup collection, or perhaps a great size to use as a Christmas tree ornament.
