The saucer is 5 1/2 inches in diameter and 1 1/2 inches deep. The cup is 4 1/2 inches tall and 4 1/4 inches across the handles. It has a deep, rich cobalt blue ground. The front of the cup has a reserve containing a scene of 18th century lovers in a garden landscape. The hand painting is of the highest quality with fine details and vivid coloring. The back of the cup has a reserve containing a large bouquet of realistic flowers accompanied by tiny insects. The reserves are framed in elaborate hand gilding. The borders on all of the pieces have lacy gilding. A figural rose with stem and leaves, serves as a finial for the lid. The saucer has an attached reticulated gallery which holds the cup in place. It is also known as a "trembleuse" cup and saucer. This is one of the most superb cabinet pieces of Meissen porcelain you can find.
