This petite little teacup is my very favorite one I’ve ever found! It’s got a lovely pearlized finish and little blue bubbles. I call it my “mermaid teacup.” It was made by Limoges and an internet source dates the mark from between 1892-1907. I’m not really sure I believe it’s that old, but regardless, I really love it! quoted from Lauren's blog.

STUNNING antique Limoges porcelain chocolate cup and saucer set with festive HOLLY. There is raised hand painted enameling added to the leaves for artist dimension. Both pieces are signed by the factory approved artist, "Mary". The edges and handles are heavily gilded. The gilding shows almost no wear. It is double marked (more valuable) with the Lanternier Limoges France Mark 4 and the Limoges France Mark 1. The Marks date it to 1890.
