is a set of four teacups and saucers made by the KPM company in Germany. The cups are 2-3/4" high and 2-3/4" across the top. The saucers are 5-1/2" wide and 1-1/4" deep. I think you were definitely supposed to use these saucers for cooling and slurping your tea. All of these have the same shape but the floral patterns are all different and all the cups mix and match with all the saucers. They all have butterflies on them. They are gilded around the tops of the cups and the saucers as well as on the handles and on the ring w the cup sits. The only problem they have is a bit of fading of the gilding in this area. Otherwise, they are in perfect condition. The bottoms have the KPM orb and scepter as well as tiny hand painted numbers. T are also some numbers impressed underneath the glaze. Buyer will be responsible for s/h. Package will weigh just slightly over 3 lbs.
