Description

Hard-paste porcelain covered cup and saucer. Decorated with enamel colours and gilt.
The saucer has two concentric light green circles, one at the edge the other a few inches in. In the middle of the saucer is a pink circle with a gilt border, and a gilt letter 'W' in the middle. There are also double lined pink circles around the saucer, two between the two green borders, and one between the inner green circle and the pink circle. These pink circles have a thick gold wavy line going around them. The covered cup has a similar design.
