Antique German Lustreware Porcelain Cup Mug Pink Purple 22kt Gold $35

Antique German Lustreware Porcelain Cup Mug Pink Purple 22kt Gold $35

Because Im half German, there are a lot of antique and vintage German wares I've collected over the past 30+ years; not just jewelry.

I love German Lava glazed pottery from the 1970s, German wooden cottage jewelry boxes, really old German cobalt glazed wares, and frilly German lusterware cups or mugs. I have a large collection of antique German lustreware porcelain cups and I cant keep all of them anymore.

What excites me about his porcelain mug is the frilly floral design and the purple, rose pink / lavender, and hot pink pearlescent lustreware colors and the 22kt gold decor. This mug was made in the 1920-1930 period and has an Art Deco influence.

Medium petite in size, the mug is 2 3/4" tall x 2 5/8" wide without the handle or 70 mm x 67 mm.

It is very hard to find mugs like this in excellent condition and this mug is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. There are no scratches, chips, cracks, repairs, and no signs of wear. The cup has been in one of my glass curio cabinets untouched for the past 30 years. The cup is not signed as many old German lustreware cups were not signed.
