Item Description: THIS SET IS JUST BEAUTIFUL!!! This rare antique handpainted pedestaled cup and saucer set has the perfect look of true old Victorian beauty! Look at the detail in the violets painted on both sides of the cup and on the saucer. The violets even show various stages of life. The handle and edges are gilded. The gilding is intact. This very delicate porcelain is marked Bavaria Favorite on the cup and the saucer also has the rare France Studio Mark which dates 1906-1916. The France Studio Mark, I found in my Pickard Book (Reed~ Pickard China page 262). Robert France founded the company. It says "the quality of his work is among the best of that period". It also says he didn't sign his work, but hand wrote the word "France". Only four other artists were known to have worked for him, 2 who worked for Pickard and one who founded the Humboldt Studios!
