* Due to some misfortune, the listing is now for one cup and one saucer only *
The set is in very good vintage condition. No chips at all. One of the cups shows some crazings.
The backstamp at the bottom of all pieces reads : "Sarreguemines DV France"
The cups are 2,75" wide and 2,5" high (7 x 6,5cm).
The saucers are 5,1" wide (13cm).
A bit of history ?
The production of Sarreguemines earthenware starts at the end of the 18th century in this village of Moselle, a region whose history is torn between France and Germany. From the struggling factory created by Jacoby and Fabry to the flourishing production site
admired by Napoleon the 1st himself, Sarreguemines has been in the hands of leading manufacturers like bavarian Paul Utzschneider or his son-in-law Alexandre de Geiger. Other factory sites were built in the famous industrious cities of Digoin and Vitry-Le-François. The production of porcelain finally stopped in 1979.
