This set of 6 porcelain pot de crèmes, or hot chocolate cups, was produced in France before 1870. They are unmarked as much of Paris porcelain is. They are 4 1/2 inches high and have a diameter of 2 3/4 inches. The lids have a flower bud molded into the porcelain which serves as the finial. They are made of fine hard paste porcelain. They are hand painted with tiny flower sprigs and one larger flower on the front of the cup. Each cup has a different flower. There is heavy gold trim and little gilded flowers scattered around each piece. Condition: There is wear to the gilding on some of the cups where the lid sits. There is slight wear on some of the gilded flowers. With Paris porcelain this is often the case. They are in very good condition for their age and it is quite rare to find a matching set of 6.

This faience charger was produced in France by Samson in the 1870’s. It has a faux Hochst mark painted in gold over the glaze. The style and quality of the painting is identical to other Samson pieces we have had. The charger measures an impressive 13 1/4 inches in diameter and has a depth of 1 1/2 inches. The body of this charger is a tin glazed ceramic ware known as faience. Samson was the great impersonator of many famous porcelain manufacturers in the 19th century. The quality of their decoration was outstanding as you can see from this charger. The border is done with an intricate fish scale design borrowed from the Meissen factory. Every loop in this pattern is painted by hand. The floral display in the center is painted with intricate detail and spectacular color. There is a beautiful bird and a nest with eggs included in the design. Two elaborated coats of arms complete the design which bears a resemblance to some Chinese Export items. This charger is in excellent condition.
