I have this very unusual LR & R Limoges demitasse cup and saucer for sale. Its shape is very similar to a oyster or shell. I think in all my years, Ive never seen a cup like this.This is from my personal collection. A translucent robins egg blue at the top and fades into white embellished hand applied gold highlights and flowers that are burgundy in color. The flowers look similar to freesias. Both on the cup and saucer. Its little saucer has such an odd shaped well. The cup fits perfectly inside its saucer like a little shoe and the saucer has baroque shape. It is from circa 1920s and is in lovely condition. This precious cup is so fine its translucent and almost feels like a shell. Most unusual and would delight any collector! The cups measures 2 in height and is 3 across the mouth to its handle. The saucer measures across to its flower at its widest point 4-1/2 and 4 from top to bottom. There is a tiny flaw near the handle that is imperceptible unless you look for it. It appears the robin blue glaze has worn away with age.
Please look in my pictures (3) from the last. Otherwise, for its age its lovely! If you are a serious collector of Limoges, you may want to consider purchasing this very unusual and lovely demitasse cup and saucer to add to your collection! You have any questions please contact me. Thank you for looking and please take a moment to look at the other items I have listed!
