We love dragons and the red dragons on our German coffee set are irresistible. Set consists of a coffee pot, creamer and covered sugar bowl, and two (tea) cups and saucers. Maker Thomas Porzellanfabrik, Marktredwitz (1908-1939), probably pre-WWI. This particular porcelain manufacturer was eventually taken over by Rosenthal. Hand-painted decoration in the gorgeous “Saxon Court Red Dragon” pattern was done in Dresden. Pot is 8 ¾ inches high and 7 ½ inches across handle. Creamer is 3 ½ inches to the highest point on lip and 5 ¼ across handle. Sugar bowl is 3 ¼ inches high and 5 inches over handles. Cups are 2 1/8 inches high and 4 5/8 inches across handle; top is 3 ¾ inches diameter. Saucers’ diameter is 5 7/8 inches. Only one saucer bears the manufacturer’s mark which has been covered in gold on the other pieces (probably by the retailer). Photo 3 at one o'clock shows a tiny cut or flaw in the inner gilt rim of the coffee pot which doesn’t go through the porcelain. There is minimal wear to the gilt on the coffee pot.
