A rare demitasse cup and saucer made by Copeland in the mid to late 19th century. A new favorite of mine : It is superbly hand painted with panels of yellow ground and raised gilding with two painted panels of flowers in their natural surrounding painted by the famous Charles Ferdinand Hürten who worked at Copeland Spode from 1860 to the late 1880's. Pieces by him are hard to find and cups are extremely rare.
Huerten was a German artist that did some of the most amazing floral paintings on porcelain ever. He did so on a lot of different pieces from giant exhibition pieces to eggshell porcelain like the set I have here. The painting is just incredible. Great shape as well with the corners indented and a gold scale design to the center of the saucer and bottom of the cup. One panel on each piece is signed CFH as shown.
The set displays perfectly but the saucer has a chip to the foot ring underneath as shown and there is a touch of fine crazing as well. Both pieces are both marked with the greenish blue fancy monogram mark with Copeland underneath used from 1851 until 1885. The cup is 2.125 inches tall and 2.25 in diameter.
The saucer is 0.75 inches tall and 4.625 inches in diameter. An amazing and rare cup & saucer set!
