We have an antique 18 piece demitasse set by Cauldon of England. The set was imported for Higgins & Seiter of New York City. Higgins and Seiter was one of the finest and oldest china houses in New York City and was located at 9 East 37th St. The store carried only the finest stock catering to the affluent New Yorkers of the time. The company filed for bankruptcy in 1915 and ceased operations after over 50 years in business.
The demitasse set is beautiful in it's simplicity. The translucent porcelain is just a shade off white with a pewter banded rim. The 18 piece set includes:
(6) Dessert plates 6"
(6) Saucers 4 1/4"
(6) Demitasse Cups 2 1/4" by 2 1/4"
The set is in wonderful condition with no chips,cracks or utensil marks. The trim as minimal wear if any. The pieces are marked 'Cauldon England' (black stamp) and 'Higgins & Seiter New York' (green stamp).
