A fun cup made by an unknown maker but very likely in Germany in the late 18th century. The underside is fully glazed even the foot which is highly unusual on German porcelain so I cannot figure it out. Either way a really nice cup with a portrait of Louis the 16th on the front on pink ground made to look like a medallion, a "pearl" ring around the top part, a white and yellow striped design to the mid section, a purple flowers with green leaves floral garland and some gold trim. Typical handle shape for the period around 1800 also with some gilding. If I had to guess a maker I would lean towards Fuerstenberg but...
The piece is not marked at all. It is in great condition with some minor fairly well done restoration to the top rim over the medallion.
The cup is 3.375 inches tall and it has a diameter of 2.875 inches. If you like my goodies have a look at my other auctions for a lot more top maker pieces like KPM , Sevres and so on.
