for the 3 piece service
3-piece coffee service consisting of coffee server, lidded sugar bowl and creamer, from Hermes in their "Toucans" pattern, produced by Moustiers France in their famous faience ware.
This redware pottery is heavier than then Limoges porcelain in which this pattern is usually found. The Moustiers ware is less common as fewer pieces were made due their being handmade, with a raised design rather than the flat design on the Limoges.
The coffee pot stands 7 3/4 inches (19.7 cm) including lid and is 6 1/2 inches (16.5 cm) in diameter including the handle. The pot holds 1.25 US quarts (1200 ml)of liquid.
The lidded sugar measures 4 5/8 inches (11.8 cm) in diameter and is 4 1/8 inches (10.5 cm) tall with the lid.
The creamer stands 4 1/2 inches (11.4 cm) tall and is 5 inches (12.7 cm) in diameter including the handle, and holds 12 US ounces (355 ml) of liquid.
The condition of all the pieces is excellent with no chips, cracks or repairs. All pieces are marked.
