This porcelain demitasse cup and saucer was produced in France by Demartine Limoges around 1891. It was made especially for Tiffany of New York.
Moorish influence is evident in this design. It resembles exotic tapestries or carpets from the 19th century.
The saucer has a diameter of 4 1/8 inches and the cup is 2 1/8 inches high. The porcelain is thin and translucent. The ground color is taupe, a combination of dark brown and gray. Both pieces are elaborately hand painted with arabesques that are accented with blue flowers and orange berries.
The whole design is textured from the raised enameling and gilding. There is trim of gold and silver at the edges and around the well of the saucer. The entire surface of the ground color has a pattern of minute gold dots covering it.
There is dental gold trim on the rims and the handle is sculpted gold. This demitasse cup and saucer is an extraordinary artistic accomplishment in the style Tiffany was famous for.
