All pieces are in perfect condition. The saucers, because they are vintage, have extremely faint marks of use where the cups stand. I think I saw a very faint scratch on the side of a cup, hardly visible.
The backstamp at the bottom of the pieces reads : "Ancienne manufacture imperiale et royale fondee en 1767 - made in Luxembourg" ( Old imperial and royal factory created in 1767)
"Garanti inaltérable" (resistant pattern guaranteed)
The cups are 3,1/2 wide and 7,3/4 high (9 x 7cm).
The saucers are 6,11/16 wide (17cm)
A bit of history ?
Villeroy and Boch was founded in 1748 in France, before moving to Luxembourg and finally to Germany.
The brand is famous for its production of high-quality ceramics, and has produced famous sets of dinnerware with highly-seeked designs such as Acapulco or Izmir.
