This is a French Limoges coffee pot decorated in the gold Wedding Ring trim on white porcelain. The maker is Mark Klingenberg. The date is the 19th century, circa 1880 to 1890.
The pot is 9 ¼" high to the top of the finial, and 9 1/2" wide from spout-to-handle.
The pot has a raised bump design in the blank, similar to a basket weave design, around the bottom of the pot, at the base of the spout and on the lid. The handle is like a rope, with raised lines, and matches the finial.
The gold Wedding Ring bands are around the lid and around the pot above the handle. There is additional gold trim on the finial, the edge of the lid, the handle, the spout and the base of the pot.
There is gold wear on the rim of the lid and on the handle. There is a small nick in the bisque on the underside base. There are no chips, cracks or crazing.
The coffee pot can also be used for tea. It is elegant and lovely, and well suited to complement any china setting.
The green underglaze maker's mark is A.K. with an underscore line.
