Antique Rare Pierre De La Mer Morte Hand Carved Teacup/Saucer 19th C. Holy Land
Rare antique Dead Sea Stone hand carved decorated teacup with saucer set. Exact age unknown but these were made from 1800 to 1900 as Dead Sea souvenirs. Rare to find a teacup & saucer set. Mostly see tumblers & footed goblets. Cup has a Georgian style handle so probably 1st half 19th century. Wear evident inside & out. Handle was reattached many years ago but is firm. 3-7/8" diameter saucer & 3" diameter cup at handle x 2-1/4 H. Please see the pictures as visual description of this item.
