Lovely German porcelain coffee pot of classical globular design, ruffled top edge and swan's neck spout. There is a swirling fluted incising through the body which is echoed by the domed lid capped by flame finial. Pink,yellow blue and green floral transfers on a cream ground adorn each side of the pot as well as the lid. The gold hand-detailing is rich yet tasteful and in impeccable condition, save one tiny 3/4" interruption on the side line of the right side of the handle. There are no cracks, chips, staining of glaze flaws that would rate it as anything but "virtually unused."
The coffee pot overall is about 10-3/4" and 8-1/2" with lid off, 5" diameter. It is more cream-colored than the photos show. Somehow they look lighter.
All of the marks are illustrated in the photos. We also have a matching covered vegetable dish in the same pattern.
