  • Pattern:  Espresso Cup & Saucer, Gold Encrusted Dots, Flowers, Scalloped
  • Made in: Bavaria, Germany 
  • Vintage: 1940's - 1950's  
  • Details:  This demitasse is so beautiful!  It is a little known pattern, by a little known German porcelain manufacturer, Tirschenreuth.  It has a gold encrusted rim with what looks like petals and dots plus the tiniest flowers are hand painted in gold all along the border.  That's all, simple, elegant and very beautiful, the Replacements used to have this pattern as TIR301.  The bottom is stamped with the Tirschenreuth mark that was used from 1940 to the late 1960's, but we believe these cups are earlier than the 60's.   If you're a demitasse collector, this is one you will love in your collection.  It will delight any user while sipping Espresso, Cuban, Greek or Turkish coffee.  Pretty hostess gift with a great bag of espresso beans.

Porcelain Factory Tirschenreuth was founded by Heinrich Eichhorn in 1833.  Factory construction was completed in 1838.  When Heinrich Eichhorn died in 1880, his shares were acquired by Edmund Tittel, Friedrich Muther and August Bauscher, (who were already owners of Schney Porcelain Factory, 1782 – 1928).  The following year August Bauscher sold his shares to Karl Gotthold Mezger.  The following year August Bauscher sold his shares to Karl Gotthold Mezger, who named the factory "Muther & Metzger".  In 1927, the porcelain manufacturer Lorenz Hutschenreuther took over the porcelain factory Tirschenreuth.  After the WWII, production re-started September 1945.   In 1994, the Lorenz Hutschenreuther AG separated from the Tirschenreuth porcelain factory and at the end of 1995, the Tirschenreuth porcelain factory was closed after more than 150 years.
