This is a French Limoges hard paste porcelain tea or coffee set, with a pot, sugar bowl and cream or milk pitcher (creamer.) The set is unmarked except for the pitcher has a maker’s mark for an unknown Limoges maker, and the mark dates the set to the last part of the 19th century, circa 1891 to 1900.

The pot is 8 ½” high to the top and 8” wide from spout-to-handle. The sugar is 6 ¾” high and 4” wide. The creamer is 5 ¼” by 3 ½”.

The pot has a built-in strainer for either tea leaves or coffee grounds. The spout is slightly figural in that the tip looks like the open mouth of a dragon or serpent, a shape used during this time period.

The sugar bowl has two round circles as part of the blank for the side handles.

This is an original set that is still together. The finials match on the sugar bowl and pot. The handles and necks match on the creamer and pot. The round feet on each piece match the other pieces.

Each piece is glazed white at the factory, but not decorated, thus the term “whiteware” or “white ware.” The set can be purchased to decorate over the glaze if desired.

There are no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing.

The green mark is Limoges underscored by the word France.
