Cups have the cipher of Count Gregory Orlov in gold as part of the decoration. They have on both sides the cipher within a gold border. On two sides of each medallion is a group of flags, etc. in silver. The rims are gold and blue. The saucers have the gold cipher within a medallion in the center with silver flags at either side. Around the sides run a scene (military) in silver. The covers are like that of the coffee pot, a decoration in blue and gold with two cupids playing, seated on a green hammock.
