Minton red and gold demitasse coffee cup and saucer
Minton - 1898
This vibrant red and gold demitasse is modelled with a fluted edge and a geometric scheme of gilding on a bright red ground. Bands of acid etched and hand painted gilding cover the surface, accented with pearls of raised paste gilt decoration in the upper quadrant.
The cup was made for the famous porcelain shop in New York, Gilman Collamore & Co.
Condition: Very good, a few minor craze lines to the underside of the saucer.
