We have here an absolutely gorgeous hand painted 14 piece Chocolate Set that is just outstanding. The reds, pinks, purples and greens that are painted on the solid gold background just jump to life on these pieces especially the chocolate pot. The set has a 11" tall x 5" diameter pot, 6 - 4 5/8" diameter saucers and 6 - 3" tall x 2 1/2" cups. This is an unsigned piece but from the decoration and mold it is surely Nippon and the gentleman I purchased this from had been in the antique business for 70 years stated it was Nippon. He had also retail priced it as a Nippon item at $1700.00. All of the pieces are in very good condition except for one cup which we have pictured. It has a very small white chip about the size of 1/16". There is also 2 saucers that each have a flea bite and the chocolate pot has a few minor nicks to the gold mostly around the front bottom (as pictured).
