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.

Next Piece

Worcester Attributed Floral Painted Porcelain Plates, Ca. 1770

Though unmarked, these look like the work of the Worcester Factory as the angled foot rim had the glaze wiped from it before firing. The rim has a basket weave pattern and a single dark brown line. The central portion is decorated with various flowers including roses, pansies, tulips and morning glories.
