    Hi all! I got this Meissen tea cup at an estate sale in a box lot not knowing it was Meissen. I don't know a thing about most porcelain. I have 3 questions. Does anyone know what this handle style is called? Also, is this a factory second....there seem to be two lines across the sword mark and a void under the handle as shown. I don't know if that is a flaw or just how it is supposed to be? Also wondering if there is an easy way to date this? Thanks is advance! DSC01231 (2).JPG DSC01231 (2).JPG DSC01230 (2).JPG

    I would never have guessed this to be Meissen, but I'm no expert so wait for others here to chime in. A quick google found THIS:

    Thank you for your help! I saw the void in the handle and thought it may be less than first quality. I can see the slashes underneath must be an indication of that.
    Again, thanks for taking the time to respond!!

    Interesting that there is no gilding at all. Does look 20th c to me, pattern-wise.
