This is a charming delicate luminescent antique porcelain china white tea or coffee cup illustrated with a vignette framing an illustration of an 18th Century costumed man and woman outside by a column amidst foliage.

The back of the cup has a repeated floral motif in gold gild that is repeated around to the front. Both the lip and handle have lines of gold, though worn away a bit in places ("vintage" condition). Fabulously shabby chic, the lower part of the cup is an opalescent pink cream color, wonderfully shimmery like mother of pearl, divided from the top by another fine gold line. The vintage china is aged within but it has no cracks or chips.

The man and woman seem to be engaged in some sort of courtship behavior ... a dance? Is he wrapping her in a cloak? Her full skirt is pink, her peasant authentically Boho top blue. The transfer is lightly worn away in places, but this is a lovely piece still as the repeated gold floral pattern fills the whole cup and there is no empty space; the visual dominates. There are no marks on the bottom. It would be wonderful as a makeup brush holder on the bathroom vanity or as an accent piece for anything white or gold. Its thinness makes it especially dainty and full of shimmery grace.

3" diameter, 3" 1/2" tall.
