The sauce has a simple gold trim design to it as does the cup but the cup has a really nice shape to it sitting on three claw feet / paws and having an intertwined snake handle both with a touch of gilding to it. The cup also has the letter M on it which was perfect for me : Both pieces are marked with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark underneath as shown, a blue 4 under the cup and gilder's marks to both pieces. The saucer is about 1 inch tall and 4.875 inches in diameter and the cup is just a touch over 3 inches tall with a diameter of about 2.625 inches.
The saucer is in perfect condition while the cup has a small firing crack in one of the snakes as shown. The inside edge of the cup is a touch rough which indicates that it probably had a lid at some point. If you like my goodies have a look at my other auctions for a lot more top maker pieces.
