This is a married set, composed of a chocolate pot marked

LIMOGES KLINGENBERG & DWENGER and four

chocolate cups marked JEAN POYAT LIMOGES FRANCE ,

dating ca. 1900-1910 the pot, and ca. 1891-1932 the cups.

They are all in excellent condition . No chips, cracks, repairs or

other faults I can see.

The pot is completely hand painted and heavily gilded on the spout

and on the handle. It measures 10 1/2" high by 6" wide with handle.

The roses are finely detailed and the gold is in great condition.

The pot doesn't have a lid.

Reference : You can find a pot of the same shape but with

lid on the Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges , 3rd Ed. page 89,

with a value of $450-550.

The cups are 3" tall and their hand painted decoration is exquisite.

The color of the gold on the pot is a bit lighter than the gold on the cups.

All together they look great for shape, style and decoration,

I don't think you could find a better match for these precious pieces.
