Kaiser Wilhelm Cup & Saucer #1

This is a cup and saucer made by Meissen in 1897/1893 for the personal use of Kaiser Wilhelm the Second. Quite rare as he preferred the ones made by KPM of which I own a few (not to say those are common either! A super cup and saucer that is nice in size and decorated in the Alt Brandenstein Pattern with a relief design to the rim with four bugs in between the relief panels, a large central floral arrangement to the saucer and four larger flower arrangements to the cup. Gold trim to the edges and handle which terminates in some small gilded relief flowers/leaves. What makes this piece special besides being a nicely done piece is the fact that it was made for the Kaiser and both pieces have his personal monogram on the underside! The set is in perfect condition. The saucer is 1.25 inches tall and has a diameter of 6.125 inches. The cup is 2.25 inches tall and has a diameter of 3.875 inches. Both are marked underneath with the under glaze blue crossed swords as well as the usual impressed numbers common to Meissen pieces of this period and off course the WR under a crown and the year 1897 under the saucer and 1893 under the cup. Sometimes the year marks are different since they all got mixed up in storage at the Royal palace. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $999
