A pair of Vienna porcelain pink-ground topographical cup and saucers
painted with titled views of Hietzing nächst Wien [Hietzing near Vienna] and Ansicht des Platzes "Die Freiung" in Wien [De Freuing Square, Vienna] within tooled gilt borders, impressed marks
One saucer has a section of the rim broken in two parts with repair and slight old restoration. This would benefit from cleaning and repair. Otherwise light surface scratches to gilding but overall good appearance.
Please note the gilded cartouches to the cups have slightly different patterns.
