Here's a little beauty from the Concord, Ca. Flea Market today. It's an antique souvenir mineral water sipping cup, from the **Karlovy Vary Mineral Springs, in 1911.
It's a Bohemian Porcelain Lusterware Souvenir Cup. It has a printed picture of Beim Sprudel in Karlsbad, it says below. On the right side in gold leaf, it says Karlsbad. and 1911. under it, on the left side 280., and on the inside top by the handle it has an underlined 210. Ce., and no other marks. The cup has gold leaf decorations of lines and flowers and ribbons, around the cup, and picture, and a line just down from the top, around the inside.
The cup is 4 3/4" high 3" at the mouth, and 1 1/2" on the bottom, including the handle at the widest point it is 4".
**The Karlovy Vary(Mineral Springs) were located in Western Bohemia, in 1911, when there were 71,000 visitors. At the end of WWI, in 1918, the visitors had dropped. In 1919 Bohemia was incorporated into Czechoslovakia, and is now the Czech Republic.
