This Wunsiedel Tea Cup and its saucer are a sober design example from a country renowned for porcelain making: Germany.
Germany has a long love story with porcelain. With the Meissen factory, it was the first European country to produce it.
It was specially made for a Belgian family “Dupont-Fourdrigniers”, so their heraldic is engraved on the set. The saucer and the cup have the family’s emblem on it, a pelican. This bird is quite popular in Belgium and the north of France.
The tea set is really light as it’s fine porcelain.
