A beautiful mold blown, high relief hand painted cup and saucer set with an attached branch style handle, showing a mythological scene of a chariot carrying a man in a colored toga being pulled by swans in the water while a nymph appears sprawled on the waves as cherubs run along the side and back, possibly a Neptune Poseidon scene. The saucer shows different colored medallions along the entire border. A wonderfully executed Italian porcelain set.
There is an inclusion on the rim, you can see a dark line, the line can not be felt by the finger, it is on both sides, the color appears to match the same paint used for the decoration, the interior looks like faded paint on the outside the paint is identical but very very close inspection shows a very small surface crack to the glaze only. Original to the making
Backstamp: Blue N with crown, mark used by Richard Ginori Doccia, Florence
Saucer is approx. 5 1/4" in diameter and the cup is just under 3" high with a 2 3/4"diam
An adorable German porcelain souvenir pin tray trinket dish with a pink pawed white teddy bear on one end and a "bottle" on the other, the bottle could be meant to display like a phonograph as it appears as if the bear is positioned to look like its listening to it. Painted green with gold lettering on the tray reads "souvenir Sioux City Iowa" (faint). Not marked but have seen others of similar fashion marked with faint marks so its safe to consider the mark has faded over time.
Measures: 5" Long 4" Tall
Condition: NO chips, cracks, or repairs. gold writing is faint and there once was possibly a cork plug in the "bottle"
