The decoration is raised with the body carved away in lower relief. Not sure how they achieved this technique, but I have never seen another cup like it.The background of the cup has a matte gilt finish where as the raised decoration is brightly gilt. From the color of the porcelain body I believe that this cup is most likely french in origin. Good condition with no chips or cracks. The cup measures approximately 3 1/8 inches wide including the handle x 2 1/4 inches tall.
The saucer measures approximately 4 1/2 inches wide.
