Floral Cup & Saucer w/ Lion & Crown Armorial

This is an interesting cup and saucer made by Meissen in the late 19th or early 20th century. Both pieces are nicely hand painted with polychrome flowers - a larger arrangement as well as some smaller single flowers. The top edge has a basket weave pattern to it but the really interesting part is an armorial of a golden rampant lion with a crown above it. I am sure it is for some sort of English royalty but could not figure out anything specific. The armorial is really detailed as is the crown so maybe someone else that knows more about this sort of thing could help. I would certainly appreciate it! Both are marked underneath with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark as well as the usual impressed numbers of the period and a black 35 as a painter's mark. First quality. Both the cup and the saucer are in perfect condition with a tiny flaw to the handle as shown but still deemed first quality so obviously not a big deal. The saucer is 1 inch tall and has a diameter of 4.5 inches. The cup is 1.75 inches tall and has a diameter of 2.875 inches. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $749
