Description: Toy teacup. When the manufacture of Continental European hard paste porcelain became widespread in the 19th century, factories began producing toy tea sets and doll accessories (Small Talk 2015). Tea sets became especially popular in the second half of the century, but it is very difficult to attribute these pieces to particular manufacturers.
