Lovely gold and white footed vintage Demitasse Cup and Saucer. Backstamp shows "Karol China, Warranted 22 KT. Gold". Below that, stamped in green, reads, "Nautilus, Made in USA, B56N8." The alpha-numeric indicates that this set was manufactured February, 1956, Factory 4.
This a beautiful footed cup and saucer with a lovely gold floral pattern with gold rims.
The saucer measures 5.25" diameter; the cup is 2-5/8" diameter mouth, 2.25" height, 1.5" diameter foot, 3.5" width to the end of handle.
Both pieces are in excellent pre-owned condition; with cracks or chips. The cup is showing signs of beginning wear or age in the gold of the handle's upper ring. Can not find fault in saucer. Not bad for over a half century old.
