This is a set of 6 advertising vintage cups for VOV - Zabajone Pezziol... an italian egg liqueur (eggs, Marsala wine, and sugar --> sold commercially as VOV) made in Padova - Italy by Pezziol.
A bright retro pale mustard yellow mixed with white and some green... all pieces are in good vintage condition with no chips or cracks, only two cup has some tiny imperfections in glaze around the rim, probably tiny manufacturing faults.
The advertising message says:
G.B. Pezziol - "VOV" - Padova - Zabajone Pezziol
The maker’s label says:
Weidmann - Porzellan - Prodotto Italiano
These pieces are perfect for a great retro modern kitchen or just to brighten up your morning coffee or your evening drink!!!

The story goes that in 1840 a sweets-maker in Padova, Mr. Pezziol, developed a drinkable Zabaione he could sell customers because he wanted to use up the egg yolks that remained after making all the Torrone (egg white and sugar nougat), which was his big seller. So Vov was born and has been a constant success in Italy ever since.
Today it's sold in different ways, as an ingredient in cocktails, as a ski-vacation pick-me-up on or just off the slopes, and as always, as an addition to coffee on a cold winter's day.
The sugar content is high, and the energy from the egg yolks is quickly broken down and made ready for use by the body.
Here's the recipe, if you want try to make it by yourself:
