Description:

Group of Six Continental Silver and Russian Porcelain Wine Cups, late 19th century, cups decorated with flowers and gilt scrolls, with Gardner Factory mark in iron red, filigree cup holder with scalloped rim and with tightly packed designs of scrolls, ht. 2 3/4 in., approx. 8 troy oz.
Estimate $800-1,200

Four cups hand painted with pink flowers (two of these with tiny rim chips and some gilt wear). The other two cups transfer-printed with purple flowers.
The frames good, with minor usage wear and very slight bending to some of the elements, and light compression to feet.
The cups do not sit perfectly flush within the frames.
Frames DO test as silver, but specific grade can't be determined.
