Parlington Hall :: Weimar Porcelain Cup
Weimar Porcelain Cup
The above porcelain cup was found during the excavation of the cellar, the laborious digging into the stairwell to uncover the staircase to the cellar was occasionally lightened by the artifacts discovered. But none more so than the finding of the first half of the cup. Then to discover the remaining half a week or so later some feet away and lower in the excavations was a shear delight, the picture shows the cup having been glued back together.
I was intrigued to find out more about the cup and started by looking up the name from the base
Weimar, on the internet, it was made by a german company started by Fasolt and Eichel their porcelain factory commenced in 1856 and production ceased around 1918. They produced tableware porcelain, coffee and tea sets, washtand sets and decorative porcelain.
A chance query on eBay and I discovered a pair of the cups along with saucers, I was fortunate to be able to win them so I now know how they look as a piece, cup and saucer. Below are the three together.
