Some designs deserve longer in the spotlight than they get. Stacking cups is one of those designs that worked, was practical and, as these two show very clearly, can be as attractive as the more awkwardly shaped cups and mugs of today.
This pair of stacking cups are extra special as they are made of bone china by Rosenthal Studio Line in Germany. They are decorated with shades of blue stylized flowers typical of the flower power designs of the late 1960s-early 1970s.
The cups are 3 inches high with lovely round ring handles. They nest beautifully and are in perfect condition. These are retro pieces but do not appear to have been used.
