Guest Book

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.
