Item Description:

These 4 porcelain demitasse cups have an embossed pattern on their outer side. Each cup is further accented with flower bouquet transfers both inside the cup as well as on the outside of the cup. A gold trim edges the top of each cup. These cups appear to be part of a set. The main floral transfer on each of the cups is the same, but the small floral transfers inside each cup and on the back of each cup are differeent flowers from the main bouquet.

Each cup bottom is marked with a 3-D cube on which appear the letters I, J, and B on each of the cube's faces; probably the manufacturer's mark. "Germany US Zone" appears below the manufacturer's mark. The period when this type of marking would have been used existed from 1945 to 1950 when Germany was divided among the Allies after WWII. U.S. started requiring country of origin stamps written in English on all imported goods starting in 1891; therefore, this item was probably made for import to the U.S. sometime between 1945 and 1950.
