Tettau Early Floral Cup & Saucer

This is a teabowl and saucer made by Tettau in the 18th century. Tettau was founded by Wilhelm Heinrich Immanuel Greiner with Christian Friedemann Greiner (yes another bunch of the Greiner family!) with the help of the businessman Johann Friedrich Paul in 1794. They are still around today! This cup and saucer is handpainted with a large flower arrangement similar in style and quality to early Wallendorf or Rauenstein pieces and they have the ribbed design to the paste so typical of all the Thuringia makers. The cup is marked with an overglaze green T mark and the saucer with a black T mark. Both have an incised number 13 underneath as well. The set is in great condition with a bit of flaking to the pink color of the rose on the cup. The cup is 1.75 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter and the saucer is 1.25 inches tall and 5.125 inches in diameter. Please e-mail me for more information or photos.

Price is $249
