The saucer, along with the example with another identical can, is most unusual. Usually a trio of coffee can teacup saucer would have a full sized saucer; the small saucer is perhaps designed to go with a purely coffee set, which are usually thought to have been sold on their own. The porcelain on all four pieces is the same translucency, and the gilding is the same type, so we can disregard a later marriage. ref. anthology #198
