Elegant antique French sterling silver tea cup & saucer with ornate machined or engraved scrolling foliate bands on each, acanthus accented handle, vermeil cup interior and both in wonderful condition! With a French Minerve #1 mark, we know this beautiful cup and saucer are guaranteed to be of at least.. 950/1000 silver content so above the. 925 standard for "sterling" silver.
About the size of a 19th century China tea cup, rare since the French weren't really known as being tea drinkers. This is not the extra large chocolate cup we sometimes offer, and isn't the other little demitasse or very small cup for espresso.
Perfect for your own enjoyment, or to give as a special gift. I've shown the silversmith's mark clearly and they're for Henin & Cie. Measurements noted on photos, but the set is about the same size as a fine old English china tea cup. One of two that we're adding this week, and among a host of the finest antique French sterling silver online so, be sure to browse some while you're with us. Very good to excellent condition, I find no dents to mention and no flaws other than light surface scuffs.
Thick and relatively heavy really, both pieces have a total weight of 4.3 troy ounces or 134 grams. We're easy to deal with.
