Made by Rudolstadt, Germany, this "Happifats" tea set is adorable. Made of hard paste porcelain and decorated with transfers of strawberries and chubby children engaged in a variety of activities and trimmed in cobalt blue around edges. Dates to 1914.
The coffee pot measures 5 1/2" tall, the large plates are just over 5" in diameter, saucers are about 4" in diameter and the cups are 2" tall and the same in diameter.
The transfers show light wear from stacking and the close up shows the worst of this wear. There is a small chip on the lip of the coffee pot spout and the finial has a nice repair..we almost missed it. There are several manufacturing glitches here and there in the form of glaze pops and small misses. No other chips or breaks.
We hope our nice price compensates for the minor flaws
