    I have a pair of these lovely Dresden cups. They look like a cross between a demitasse and a chocolate cup. Whatcha think?

    Very pretty.
    Pretty sure that mark is in Rontgen. I know I've seen it somewhere.

    The mark is indeed in Rontgen's as Franziska Hirsch decorator's mark. 20221020_080019.jpg

    So elegant.

    This reminds me, I have my grandparents' Dresden coffee set with cake plates somewhere. I've been meaning to sell it for years, never got around to it.
    My grandfather studied in Dresden after WWI, just before he got married, maybe that is when he got it.

    Just a feeling or it could be an educated guess, but I think the cups are for coffee, not chocolate. Used after dinner.

    Chocolate cups are usually higher than coffee cups.
