In the background is an altar with two flaming hearts. This scene is surrounded by a garlanded curtain and shells. A most attractive design. Saucer diameter 11.7cm (4.6"), cup height 6.6cm (2.6")

    The origin of this scene has not yet been discovered.

    Dating: Qianlong, c1750-60
    This set is in very good condition. There is some minor rubbing to the gilding in places. The saucer is in excellent, undamaged condition. The coffee cup has one very small and shallow chip at the rim with an associated very short (around 2mm) hairline. See final image.
