Moritzburg Scene Cup

This is a cup made by Meissen in in the early 19th century. This Roman numeral II mark was a way to identify different types of porcelain pastes and was used from the later 18th century all teh way until 1815. The cup is hand painted with a really nice scene depicting the castle Moritzburg which is in the municipality of Moritzburg in the district of Meissen in Saxony, Germany, between Meissen and Dresden . So a fitting scene for a Meissen cup! The scene includes the caslte as well as water in front with some swans on it, two people and lots of greenery. It's nicely done with the rest of the cup having some simple gold trim and a typically shaped handle for this time period. The piece is in great condition with a very minor touch of wear to the gilding, a few minor firing flaws and a small chip to the foot that does not take away from the piece! The cup is 1.875 inches tall and has a diameter of 3.25 inches and is marked underneath with the under glaze blue crossed swords, the Roman numeral II as well as the usual impressed numbers.
