Augarten Wien Austria Two Ashtrays and Candleholder



Produced by one of the finest porcelain companies of the world, on a par with Meissen and Nymphenberg, Augarten has been operating for nearly 300 years in Vienna , Austria . This three piece smoking set is hand painted with beautiful green flowers and gold trim on a white porcelain background. Each ashtray is 4 1/4 X 3 3/4 inches and has a depth of 3/4 inch. The center pattern is called Deutsche Blumen by the factory but I know it as Alt Maria Teresia. The outside rim is gold and has an accent line of green inside the gold.

The candleholder stands 2 1/4 inches tall and has a footprint of 2 3/4 inches. It is painted with one large and two small Dueutsche Blume motifs. The rim is gold trimmed with the green accent line inside. It comes with a green candle that is in unused condition. They are a set, being signed on the back with the Augarten bindenshield, the mold number of 661 and the pattern number of 5851. Lastly is written the artist number 75 which belongs to Helene Neumeyer who worked for the factory from, 1940 to 1960.

All three pieces are as new with no gold wear, no chips, cracks or crazing.
