Pair of 19th C. Mochaware Demitasse Cups
Here are two 19th C. English Mochaware demitasse cups with applied handles. They are decorated with dark brown slip in a "seaweed" or "tree" pattern on a yellow ground with a dark brown line around the rims. One has a mark (illegible) and the other is unmarked (more typical). Each measures 2 1/4" in diameter by 2 3/8" tall. In fine condition with no breaks or chips, just a very slight roughness to the top edges from age and use. One also has more staining inside the cup than the other. Assembled pair? Possibly. But I purchased them together so I am selling them together.
