VINTAGE FIGURAL CUP AND SAUCER (161040)

DESCRIPTION
This is a beautiful cup and saucer with the focus on the inside of the cup.
The outside of the cup and most of the saucer are cobalt blue with gilt edges and scattered gilt wreaths.
Inside the cup there is a hand painted portrait of a beautiful woman playing a harp. She is dressed in an old world costume with a mantilla on her head. The color of the background varies from green to yellow and there is a cobalt blue border with lots of gilt trim as well as a circle of gilt leaves at the bottom of the cobalt blue border.
The cup is footed.
The pieces are made of fine china.
There are no maker's marks.
The cup and saucer would be European in origin.

MEASUREMENTS
The saucer measures 5.5 inches / 14 cm across.
The cup measures 3.5 inches / 9 cm across the top (excluding the handle) and stands 2 inches / 5 cm high.

AGE
I am conservatively dating the cup and saucer as circa 1950s, but the set could be older.

CONDITION
The pieces are in very good vintage condition with very minor rubbing of the gilt. There are no chips or cracks on the outside. There are 2 very small areas underneath the cup that have missing glaze.

SHIPPING
Items are shipped with Australia Post.

Returns and exchange details

If a buyer wants to seek a refund, the buyer must get in touch with me within 14 days of receiving the item.
I will refund if you change your mind about the item - the cost of the item only, not the postage costs. The item must be returned to me in the same condition it was sent.
If an item is damaged in transit to such an extent that it can't be used, I will refund the cost of the item and the postage cost paid by the buyer. If the item is slightly damaged, but is still usable or repairable, I will discount the price. I will require proof of damage - an emailed photo will usually suffice.
If an item is lost in transit, I will refund the cost of the item and the postage cost.
If an item with a tracking number tracks as having been delivered and you didn't receive it, you must take this up with the carrier. The carrier won't allow me to do this on your behalf.
I will refund if the item is not as described. I may ask the buyer to return the item to me. In that case, I will pay for the cost of postage both ways as well as the cost of the item. If the buyer would like to keep the item at a discounted price, I will negotiate a price with the buyer.

Additional

Please don't ask for a discount. I probably won't respond to your request.

All of the goods I sell are vintage and most will have had prior owners. For this reason, they are likely to show some signs of age or wear. This is normal and I will only mention specific issues that I think you should know before deciding to purchase.
