This gorgeous, ornately detailed cup and saucer depicts the ancient city of Genoa (Italian for Genova), Italy. Today the port of Genoa is currently the biggest Italian port regarding both passenger and cargo, and one of the most important ports of the Mediterranean Sea. The beautiful scene looks like a classic Italian garden and is surrounded by an intricate lace, scroll and vine inner border. The outer corners which are cut have a raised/embossed motif of scrolls and flowers and delicate black hand painted accents. Absolutely gorgeous detail!
