The cup has a typical shape for this maker which is very similar to earlier Paris porcelain shaped except for the handle terminal.
It has a gold trim to the top edge but the best part is the hand painted design in all black.

The piece is marked with the Saint Petersburg, Russia, under glaze green mark Czar Alexander III 91 for 1891, black hammer and sickle and cogwheel mark 1922 with the letter c after it (I think) and N = 238/64, N 238/22.
Two green dots on the foot ring inside typical for authentic pieces but not sure what they represent. The decoration is after Sergei Chekhonin. The piece is in perfect condition but it is sadly missing its saucer. Any simple gold trim Paris saucer would fit perfectly with it though!
