Offered for sale is this charming, French, porcelain Limoges tea set consisting of a tea pot, lidded sugar and creamer. Each features a romantic, Victorian bouquet filled with cascading, purple, African violets expertly hand painted by a talented china painting artist on a melon green (with a touch of Autumn blush peeking through here and there) backdrop. The dramatically curved, ornate handles and elaborate finales have been decorated with a rich, Roman coin gold design on a snow white, background. The teapot stands, from its regal finial to its emerald green, footed base, 7.75 inches, the sugar, 5.25 inches and the creamer 4.5 inches. Reversed on each is a Delinieres & Cie Limoges, France hallmark used between 1894 and 1900.
This magnificent, French tea set is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or paint flakes.
