Schney Cup & Saucer #2

This is another cup and saucer made by Schney around 1800 matching the first one on the website. Schney was founded in 1781 and was in existence for a long time until about 1928. This set was made in the late 18th to early 19th century and is handpainted with a scene very typical for Thuringia porcelain makers like Gotha. The ruin type scenes are painted all in brown tones and have a plaque on each with the saying: Freude und Glueck begleiten (on the cup) as well as die Tage unsers Lebens (on the saucer) which combined means: Happiness and luck accompany us through our life. Nice gold trim as well! The set is in great condition with a small chip to the rim of the cup rim that can't be seen from above as well as a little gold wear. Both pieces are marked underneath with the script S mark in underglaze blue as well as an incised 4 or triangle type mark and a black number 42. or 49.The cup is 2.375 inches tall plus the handle which makes it about 3 inches tall and 2.75 inches in diameter. The saucer measures 0.875 inches tall and 5.625 inches in diameter. Please e-mail me for more information or photos.

Price is $499
