Beautiful Rare S. C. Richard. Early - Mid Century Italian Cup & Saucer - Lace Design 4.
This is a beautiful and rare bespoke cup and saucer dressed in a gold lace design on both cup and the saucer. The design has a raised quality to it and exquisite intricate hand painted detailing. If you are a lover of lace and textiles then you will appreciate the content and aesthetic of this sweet set. The shape is elegant and the handle is a perfect size to not off balance the design. I have another three designs at time of launching this collection.
Made in Italy by maker S. C. Richard.
In general the set is in good condition, there is wear to the gold rim from use and a couple of small nibbles to the touch to the underside of the saucer and one to the base line to the cup.
Unsure of exact age but they date between early to mid 1900's.
The saucer measures 14.5cm in diameter and the cup measures 8cm in diameter and 5cm in height.
