Kaiser Wilhelm II Royal Floral Cup & Saucer

This is a cup and saucer made by Meissen in 1897/1902 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 superb cup and saucer decorated in the Alt Brandenstein Pattern with a relief design to the rim with four hand painted bugs in between, a large central floral arrangement to the saucer and three larger flower arrangements to the cup as well as some scattered smaller flowers. Gold trim to the edges and handle. 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 5.875 inches. The cup is 2.125 inches tall and has a diameter of 4 inches. Both are marked underneath with the underglaze 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 / 1902 under that. The year marks are different because there would have been a lot of these cups in their pantry and they would get mixed up - no big deal. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $1249
