An antique toy porcelain tea set featuring hand painted decoration on each piece. The flower is stamped onto the porcelain then someone hand painted the colors and blue trim. The teapot has a dainty spout with gold embellishment at the rim. Both the cream pitcher and sugar bowl show the same gold detailing. We love how vibrant the colors are after all these years.
Manufactured by R.S. Prussia, this wonderful child's set dates to the 1896 for a time period. The set is complete with teapot with lid, sugar bowl with lid, cream pitcher and tiny six cups and saucers. The 17 pieces come with its original box although the lid has seen better days. We see the Made In Germany import stamp still attached to the side of the box.
Measurements are teapot 3 3/4 inches tall, creamer 1 1/2 inches tall, sugar 2 1/2 inches tall, cup 1 1/2 inches, and saucer 2 3/4 inches in diameter. We find one tiny flake off of the rim to the teapot. The decoration is still very much intact with only a smidgen of wear. The box is in need of some TLC but it has done its job keeping this set from harm.
