Leuchtenbhurg China Very pretty antique child’s cup with cute graphics of a boy and girl with two animals, a sheep and goose. Marked on underside “Leuchtenburg Germany” with a graphic of a castle turret. From the style and type, we believe this to be an antique piece minimally a vintage child’s cup , likely dating to the early ‘s.

This was found out of a home. The multi-color graphics encircle about half the cup with the remainder left blank. The order on the cup shows the white sheep first, followed by the boy dressed in what may be a shepherd’s type outfit as he is carrying a curved shepherd’s staff and wearing a broad-rimmed hat, followed by a white goose, and ending with a girl in a bonnet and skirt carrying what looks like a plate or dish of bread or simple cake.

The cup has a white base coloring with pink highlighting near the rim and a bit of pink on the handle. Porcelain child’s cup was made with a slight fluting to the upper edge it is not a smooth round circular top although the form is definitely circular and raised in-mold design on the outside near the top edge in a repetitive arch form with raised dots. As made, this raised design was not evenly done around the cup with a large smooth section missing this design along the top in the area about midway from the sheep to midway of the boy.

I am pleased to report that the house was purchased and made its journey to New Jersey for much needed restoration. I will be writing a magazine article about the house once the restoration is complete, but I want to share a little bit about it here as I get started. It was built in at the request of a lady who owned a bookshop in Boston.

The family from whom I purchased the house had owned it for over 40 years and in that time, it had seen a lot of play.

The children could actually climb into the principal rooms and curl up in them, and over the years, all that platy took its toll, but it was so fortunate that no one ever painted over the two Sidney Burleigh murals that made me fall in love with this house.
