Antique Royal Vienna Double Handle Tea Cup /Saucer GOLD Encrusted Beehive Shield. Absolutely stunning with gold wash interior and gold beaded accents throughout. The mark on both the cup and saucer are underglaze. The unusual double handle tea cup is fabulous and measures 2 3/4" high and 3 3/8" diameter. The saucer measures 5 1/8 diameter.
The interior does have some mild wear in the bottom, probably where a spoon was used, but all gold is intact. I believe this is from the mid to late 1800's but have found it difficult to interpret the blue underglaze beehive marks to nail down a specific time period.
