    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Photographic Transfer Porcelain Cup & Saucer. Thick porcelain cup, measuring 3.5" tall and 3.75" across. The front has a photographic transfer of Lincoln directly on the porcelain surface, after the Brady $5 bill portrait, surrounded by a gilded oval, all against a sea green background. There is additional gilding on the rim, the handle, and a band of gilding in the interior. It is accompanied by the matching 6.25" saucer. Though unmarked, it is likely of French or German origin, circa 1865. Condition is excellent, with only minor wear. We are selling another set with blue background.
