Early Continental Porcelain Childs Dinner Set

RIBBON & ROSE c1890

This is a beautiful childs dollhouse dinner service made in Europe. likely Germany, Bavaria or Prussia. It dates to the end of the 19th century, pre-1891. The set is decorated with clusters of roses alternating with hand painted blue ribbon streamers, rims tipped in gold. The pieces have scalloped rims and gadrooned edges. The set is comprised of:

Soup tureen with lid and attached undertray,7 inches long, 4-1/2 inches tall (2 chips to edge of undertray);

2 vegetable or sauce tureens with lids and undertrays, 2-1/2 inches tall, 4-1/2 inches long;

2 gravy pitchers or sauce boats, 2-1/4 inches tall, 4-1/2 inches long;

4 platters, 5-1/2 inches and 4-1/2 inches long, 2 of which are used are undertrays for the veg tureens (tiny nic on underside of one platter);

6 plates, 3-3/4 inches in diameter; and

6 bowls, 4-5/8 inches in diameter with deep center well (1 hairline)

The rosette and hand painted streaming ribbon motif is not found in any of the standard reference books about childrens and dolls early ceramic tea sets. However, the forms, molding and embossing resembles wares and design of late nineteenth century German, Bavarian and Prussian makers. We expect the dinner set is quite scarce, and especially so because so many pieces have survived together.

The set is in overall great condition with only the minor issues described above and no other chips cracks or repairs. The decoration and gilding is essentially scratch-free. A fantastic addition to any collection of early child's and dolls table wares. Sold as is, as shown.
