An antique porcelain chocolate pot featuring the Old Ivory decoration of brown and green roses. The roses are surrounded by hand applied coin gold and are enhanced with hand applied enameling. This is one of the very few chocolate pots that are decorated in such a manner. The roses are a transfer print but an individual has outlined the transfer in black then applied the gold.
Hallmarked twice from the Hermann Ohme factory; one mark is the orange and green factory mark and the other tells us the mold name of Alice. The marks give us a date range of manufacturing in the first decade of the 20th Century. If you own the Encyclopedia of Old Ivory Porcelain you'll see this piece featured on page 145.
Measuring 10 inches tall we find a small bite out of the bottom table rim which does not effect display value in the least. Our price does reflect this slight imperfection. A super piece to add to your Old Ivory or chocolate pot collection.
