Customer Question

Hi , i am trying to identify 2 tea/coffee cups that a great aunt gave me years ago they have crude ring handles ( the loop is not complete but joins together at the side of the cup ) they are decorated with flowers and a courting couple , the guy is playing a lute to the lady , the cups are not marked but are very small , about 2 inches high by 1 1/2. Inches wide they have gilt decoration around the top of the cup and down the sides , the pieces are hand painted but seem very basic , I can take a pic if needed

Thanks
