Antique Mustache Mug Pre-1890s Porcelain Teacup Gold Gilt Edges & Details Pink Blossom Teal Stem Likely German Made Moustache Cup w/ Handle


Antique mustache mug. Likely pre-1890s white porcelain cup with angular handle, gold gilt edges and details, hand painted pink lotus blossom with teal stem. Likely German or Prussian made. A rare delicate, collectible, moustache teacup.

Approximate size:
3 ¼” tall
3 ¼” diameter
2 3/8” diameter at base
4 1/8” width at handle

In gold writing, it reads what appears to be:
"1000/DS 12"

The lack of the country of origin means the piece was more than likely made prior to 1890s, at the height of mustache mug popularity.

Excellent vintage condition, other than a chip at the inner rim, not very obvious to the eye, but can be felt. A touch of wear to the gold outline at rim. Flaws have been considered in pricing.
