I have seen this motif in collectibles books, but this is first set I have owned. This wonderful set of Kaffee Klatch tray and plates was produced in the 1950’s. Familiar to some as “Kaffeeklatsch “, it is of German origin and means “an informal social gathering for coffee and conversation”. With clever quips and colorful coffee motif, this set will definitely add to the conversation! The large tray measures 19” in diameter. It is in excellent condition showing only light surface scratches. The two matching plates were produced by the Federal Glass Company. They measures 9 7/8”in diameter and are in unused condition. The plates are marked with the Federal “F” in the shield. The perfect set to serve up your favorite coffee and Kuchen (cake) or Kekse (cookies)!
