This is a French Limoges hard paste porcelain jug or pot. It is the shape of a chocolate pot, but it is smaller, demitasse size, so it may be a syrup jug. The maker is Charles Ahrenfeldt. The pot is factory decorated for the Gump Department store. The date is circa 1900.

The pot is 8” high to the top of the finial and 5” from spout-to-handle.

The body of the pot is cylindrical and it holds about 2 cups of liquid.

The finial is shaped like a flower and covered in gold. The spout is gold and the handle is also covered in gold.

The pattern is one of small pink roses with green scrolls and leaves, along with an abstract pink design bordered in green. The pattern is around the top of the pot and on the lid. There are a few scattered roses on the body of the pot.

The bottom edge of the lid has a large cut-out so that the liquid can pour out through the spout.

The Limoges companies are not known for the production of syrup jugs, and I did look for it in the literature. However, there are small chocolate pots, which may be not identified correctly, and which are actually syrup jugs.

There are no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing.

The maker’s mark is CA with France above and Depose below. There is also the factory decorating mark of C Ahrenfeldt for Gump Co San Francisco with a wreath, a bear and the number 1915.
