Cup/Saucer Need More Info

annie1971September 10, 2011

Here's another cup and saucer that I know is very old, but beyond that I know very little. It's extremely light weight and translucent. There's a stamped or incised mark on the cup and a smaller one on the saucer. I hope someone can make it out enough to help me with the set's origin. The mark looks like a two-fingered glove or rabbit ears, if I photographed it right. Any opinions would be a help.

Can't make out the mark at all.....can't even see it. But the shape and style of decoration looks German about 1890 to 1910...or Bavarian or Austrian...

Yes, Linda, that would make sense. I have been thinking that they look Bavarian/Austrian during that time period. One of my grandmother's sisters was a governess with a family that spent time in Germany before WWI. (someday I'll share her post cards). She subsequently joined my grandmother here in America. But I was wondering if it could be an American piece from the other side of the family. I do wish I could pinpoint that mark.

Here's a rubbing of the mark on the cup. There is a smaller version of the same mark on the rim of the saucer back. I know it's not great, but maybe it will help you to see the outline on the previous photo of the cup back.
