Offered for sale is this antique Haviland Limoges French porcelain tea cup and saucer set in the pink "Drop Rose" pattern, Schleiger pattern number 55. I will be listing more pieces in this beautiful pattern over the next few days. Please excuse the reflections in the pictures.
The saucer is approximately 5 and 3/8ths inches (13.25cm) diameter. The cup is just over 1.75 inches tall. Both pieces are in excellent condition.
There are no chips, no cracks, no flea bites, no repairs. There is some gold wear, mainly to the top of the cup rim, but it's not excessive. There are some of the small manufacturing flaws (specks of residue in the glaze, tiny bits of stray decoration) you typically get with antique Haviland porcelain - they were made like this. Please see the close up pictures. Haviland marks on the bottoms as shown.Unfortunately, we have no control over that.
