sold thank you.
A fine old Luneville faience tea set consisting of teapot (or coffee pot), sugar and creamer. Pretty floral pattern called Strasbourg tulip. Teapot cover and sugar cover both have fruit form finials. Old crown mark of K&G Luneville from the 1920s or earlier. Pink trim all around... so very continental in mood. The famous Luneville rich pink is achieved with the use of gold doped into the enamel color fired at high temperature.
Creamer 4" high by 3" diameter. Very good condition. Sugar 2.8" diameter, 3.5" highest. Very good condition with no cracks or repairs. One small chip on footrim not normally visible.
Teapot 7.5" high to finial, 8" widest and 5" diameter widest. Condition of teapot is good. A very small glaze chip on the spout. Lid has hairline on inside rim, doesn't extend to upper lid. Structurally sound. Overall good condition.
All pieces normal glaze crackle for old French faience.
This is one charming and pretty hard to find old faience set. Used but not abused. Wonderful spring colors. Email if you have questions.
