An antique porcelain chocolate pot set featuring shadowed trumpet flowers and leaves. The main color is white with shades of brown and lavender. We see areas of raised 18K gold, hand painted enameling around the floral decoration. The base and rims of the pot and cups have a slightly scalloped edge. The handles are straight at the top then flare out and down with cutout areas. The entire set has a high gloss glaze finish.
We find a few hallmarks on this set. One is the RS Germany blue wreath mark which was used c. 1910 to 1945. We also see the importers mark on the pot and cups from Montgomery Ward Co. with hand painted. These marks are done in gold. We would place this set right around 1910 because of the more fanciful mold design which was inherent in earlier R.S. Prussia pieces. The molds tended to get simpler and less fancy as the century wore on.
The chocolate pot measures just about 9" tall to the top of the lid. The cups are 3" tall and saucers are 5" in diameter. We have inspected each piece carefully and are happy to report that there is absolutely no damage. We see just a bit of decoration wear to the chocolate pot lid but all in all, this is in fine antique condition.
