Pair of 18th Century Meissen Cups & Saucers

Gemanic States/Dresden Mid 18th Century

I would describe these as “assembled” only because one saucer has a gilded rim edge and the other 3 pieces have a brown enamel rim edge. Perhaps a saucer broke and the owner purchased another from the Meissen factory right off the shelf of a new run. The pale yellow ground exteriors with flowers and butterflies. The floral decorated interiors with flowers and insects on a white ground.

Minuscule imperfections and one small chip to the rim of one cup edge at a peak.
