The Antiquarians are pleased to offer this wonderful 14 Piece R S Germany Prussia Vintage Porcelain Double Anemone Chocolate Pot Set which includes the chocolate pot with lid, and 6 demitasse cups and 6 saucers. The R S Germany Prussia Vintage Porcelain Double Anemone Chocolate Pot Set features a motif of lovely white petaled double anemones, with reddish pistils and stamens. The undersides of the petals reveal vibrant pink hues. The front of the R S Germany Prussia Vintage Porcelain Double Anemone Chocolate Pot has four flowers atop three stalks of varying heights which rise from the bottom of the chocolate pot. The shorter stalk has an anemone bud peering out from beneath the full bloom. The leaves of the stalks are painted in light to dark shades of greens and browns which give the sense of shadowing. The back of the pot has one single anemone flower rising from the bottom of the pot on a stalk profuse with leaves. The porcelain is painted in muted, creamy shades of ivory tinged with green, starting with lighter shades at the bottom of the pot, and ending with more robust shades of browns and pinks at the top, creating a subtle, gorgeous background for the flowers. The lid of the chocolate pot has one single anemone bud with three dark green leaves, coming from a stem which seems to rise from the thin gold painted band and the deep hues at its bottom, which mirror the colors of the top of the chocolate pot. A thin gold band also embellishes the front edge and center of the lid's notched handle. The chocolate pot measures approximately 9 3/4 inches tall from the base of the pot to the tip of the lid, six inches from the edge of the spout to the top edge of the handle, and the diameter of the base is 3 1/4 inches. There is significant wear to the gold painted line which embellishes the spout and the top of the pot. There is also a 1/2 inch long chip along the inside rim of the pot, which cannot be seen if the lid is in place, and in no way affects the function of the pot. (Please see the pictures below for more detail).
The six saucers have a single anemone motif which is an exact duplicate of the single anemone which embellishes the chocolate pot's lid. The anemone is surrounded by the rich brown and pink hues which adorn the top of the chocolate pot and base of the lid, before fading into the lighter ivory color tinged with green. The center of the saucers are pure white porcelain. The saucers measure approximately 4 3/4 inches in diameter. A thin gold band is painted along the outer edge and inner edge of the saucer. Three of the saucers have almost no loss to the gold paint, while one has significant loss. One saucer has a mold imperfection which can be seen and felt. Another saucer has about five 1/4" scratches located near the edge to the left of the flower.
The six demitasse cups have two full anemone blossoms on one tall and one short stalk, with the shorter stalk having an additional bud beneath the full white bloom. A curved detail on the mold dips from the bottom of the handle and arcs to a point at the opposite end of the cup. The chocolate pot also has this same detail. The rim of the cup has a fine gold band, while the handle has a fine gold detail on the front edge and along the center, matching the embellishment on the chocolate pot's lid. The cups measure approximately 3" tall. The diameter of the cup is 2-1/8", and measures 3-1/8" from the edge of the rim to the edge of the handle. Four of the cups are in excellent vintage condition, with no noticeable gold loss or blemishes. One of the other cups has a flea bite on the rim which can be felt and seen, plus a dark spot on the inside bottom of the cup which appears as if it was fired into the glaze, while the other cup has a hairline crack that spans the bottom. This cup also has a flea bite on its rim. As only two cups and two saucers have damage and wear, I suspect that only two of these were ever used, while the others were kept in the cabinet.
All of the pieces of this 14 Piece R S Germany Prussia Vintage Porcelain Double Anemone Chocolate Pot Set are appropriately marked on the bottom RS Germany with the wreath, all in blue.
