You can only see this when holding the cup at a certain angle. I placed this as the second photo and placed it as a different color to help highlight that phrasing. Hand painted on back of saucer and gold: R417R. This is like new condition. Received this as a gift, did not retain original packaging because I was younger and more concerned about recycling than keeping!Beautiful gold and maroon trim around edge of saucer and edge of cup. Saucer measures approximately 4.75 inches across. Demitasse cup measures approximately 2 5/8 inches wide at mouth NOT including handle. There were a total of 2 cups and two saucers available at the time this listing was created. Both cups and both saucers are represented in the photos.
