The double cup-and-saucer set "Tulips with golden leaves" is based on designs by Ernst August Leuteritz. Resplendent in elaborate reliefs in 23-karat gold, these sorts of extensively decorated porcelain pieces are truly in keeping with the spirit of the era - a brilliant example of Rococo Revival opulence. One of the double cup-and-saucer set "Tulips with golden leaves" is decorated with a golden flower relief in the middle of the acanthus ornaments. The second cup shows detailed tulip paintings in different colours and pose with golden leaves in between the relief. With fine brushstrokes, the tulips are applied to the porcelain by hand. The 23-karat gold ornamentation combines intricate matte and glossy gold elements that lend the opulence a subtle sophistication. A magnificent Christmas present for him and her.
