A lidded cup & saucer made by Doccia / Ginori in the early 19th century. Probably a hot chocolate cup. The cup is decorated with biblical or mythological scenes in relief all around that are hand painted very nicely. It has a red coral branch handle to either side. The lid also has the raised figures to it with a gold rim and has a figurine serving as the finial.
The saucer has the usual really neat relief design with swags of relief flowers in between. The set is in great condition with some minor wear to the gilding and a few firing cracks in the applied designs of the saucer which is typical of their earlier pieces! The set displays perfectly and it's a rare set as the lidded pieces are very hard to find. The cup is unmarked but the saucer has their gold star mark as shown.
The saucer is 1 inch tall and 5.375 inches in diameter, the cup is just under 3 inches tall and 2.875 inches in diameter and the lid has a diameter of 3 inches and is about 2 inches tall. Italian Capodimonte style Deckeltasse Italy.
