This porcelain cup & saucer is hand-made in the South of Germany by a team of craftspeople. The company was founded in 1929. The region once had 1000 ceramicists and 8 porcelain factories, and now has just 15 ceramicists and 1 factory. 

A few thoughts about Porcelain - it is a very clean raw material, with few metal oxides, which is why it is so white. It is also very hard wearing and resistant.   

The making process is fairly complex and involves 3 separate firings.  The gold is applied with oil.  During the firing process the oil evaporates leaving the gold in place.
