GERMANY – COFEE CUP – PATRIOTIC IRON CROSS – DEMITASSE – KPM.
This is a very fine patriotic demitasse coffee cup from the famed Prussian porcelain maker KPM. Founded by Prussian King Frederick the Great, this firm provided tableware for every King/Kaiser of Prussia/Germany thereafter. They also provided the tableware for Princes of the House of Hohenzollern.
KPM also provided top quality items to the German people who flocked to their showrooms to buy from the firm that provided plates etc. to the King/Kaiser. This was especially the case during the Great War when they produced patriotic items to support Germany (And for good commercial reasons as well.).
The basic color is gray on the exterior of the cup. There is a gold trim on the lip of the cup which extends to the handle.
In the center of the cup, there is a golden ring. Within the ring there is a silver and black 1914 Iron Cross.
On the bottom of the cup we see the KPM hallmark and an Iron Cross.
