This is a very thin, fine bone china which is transluscent when held up to the light. It is white on the lower half and pale pink on the upper half with embossed oyster shells and coral. It’s quite small, measuring only 2” tall by 2.25” across the top of the lip. I’m wondering if it is Limoges or majolica? There are no chips, nicks or cracks on it that I can see, but it does have an odd speckling of brown & black in places. I can’t tell if it’s the remnants of original decoration, or if they are stains of some kind. It’s a very delicate and fascinating piece!
