ANTIQUE LIMOGES HAND PAINTED CHOCOLATE / COFFEE POT & 4 CUPS
- Source: eBay
This is a married set, composed of a chocolate pot markedLIMOGES 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. Please see my other items. I have more Limoges on sale.
