#2265 Lapis Blue and Gold Demicups

 These are beautiful and appear to be perfect, but am rating them Good to Excellent condition because of some very slight wear of gold here and there on some (not all) of them -- only noticeable upon close examination.  Also, the decals on some (not all) of them are off center.  Age and origin unknown, but these are definitely old.  Have not been able to identify this mark.  Please e-mail if you know this mark.  The pieces that are left are the ones with the decals slightly off center.

Pre-WW II -- 1939 or earlier.   The mark is dated from 1918-1939 from Count Thun's Porcelain Factory.So very dainty, elegant, and sheer -- holding up to the light, the light shines through -- a sign of very fine porcelain.  The pieces are beautifully detailed with heavy gold trim.  The cup measures approximately 2 1/2 inches diameter by 2 1/4" tall.  The saucer is 5 inches diameter.  Excellent condition -- very minor pin-head size loss of gold here and there on inside gold ring of saucer.  Priced accordingly.

SOLD #2749 Old German Chocolate Cup, 1918-1922 SOLD

Thanks to helpful viewer, Mari, this mark has been identified as that of Hemann Ohme Porcelain Factory, known for producing products known as Old Ivory.  Kovel's Dictionary of Marks, page 16, further states this factory was in business c.1882-1930 in Niedersalzbrunn, Silesia, Germany, (now called Szczwienko, Poland).   This mark is almost worn off.  Pattern name appears to be Carmen.  Also according to Kovel's Newsletter of May 2007, this mark was used 1918-1922.   Gold trim around rims, but is somewhat worn -- a good sign of its age.  Good condition otherwise.    A pretty little old treasure at a good price.

SOLD#2585 German TeacupsSOLD
"Echt Kobalt" is apparently the pattern name (see the mark).  The mark indicates these are from the Reichenbach Porcelain Factory of Reichenbach, Thuringia, Germany.  The GDR part of the mark is for "German Democratic Republic" (East Germany) which was established in 1949 and ended in 1990.  Based on that, these cups were made no earlier than 1949 and possibly as late as 1977 when the company put a different mark into use (Source:  Directory of European Porcelain by Danckert, page 383).  The footed teacups are 1 12" tall x 3" across top opening.  Saucers are 4 1/4" diameter.  Notice the heavy gold decoration on the cobalt blue background, as well as the delicate florals in the dainty rococo style cartouches.  These are real beauties and in excellent to perfect condition.

 SOLD#2742 French Demicups SOLD

All pieces are simply marked France except for one cup which has an added red mark that says something like Pillivuyt et Cie., la Porcelaine de France which I assume was/is probably a decorating mark for this factory/studio.  The closest I can come to identifying it is on page 271 of Danckert's Directory of European Porcelain.  However, this exact mark is not represented there, nor is there much information except they began in business in 1853.  These cups, however, are definitely not that old and appear to be c.mid-20th century or later.  The city of origin appears to be Mehun-sur-Yevre.  Age unknown.  These beautiful cups are 2" tall x 2" diameter across top opening.  Saucers are 4 1/4" diameter.  One cup has a minor flaw in the side (see picture) which is under the glaze and apparently a manufacturing flaw.  Other than that, they are in excellent condition.  Gorgeous Cranberry with heavy gold trim

SOLD#3929 M. Redon Limoges Small TeacupSOLD

From Martial Redon of Limoges, France.  Marks were used c.1905-late 1930's.  Green mark is a whiteware mark.  Red mark is a decorating mark.  The PL is for La Porcelain Limousine, the new factory name as of c.1905.  (Source:  Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain, Third Edition, by Gaston, page 269)  This is a very special little cup and saucer -- so dainty and so very pretty with its beautiful roses and gold decoration.  It is, unfortunately, not perfect as we believed when we purchased it (read note below).  Priced accordingly, as is.  A nice example of this old Limoges factory and its marks.

 The saucer is 4" diameter.  The cup is 1 3/8" tall x 2 5/16" diameter.  Perhaps intended to be a child's cup and saucer.

The cup does have a hairline in the side, not noticeable from the front, but visible on the inside front panel -- will post a picture asap.  I only found it just now when trying to determine if the roses are hand painted, which they are.

Gorgeous.  Hand painted and hand decorated.  Panels of pink, yellow, and wine roses alternating with black panels, all outlined with beautiful white beading.  Gold handle and rims put the finishing touches on this beauty.  The rim has a minor professional repair on the gold which is not seen -- we know it's there because we had it repaired because of a small nick.  The dark green mark is that of the Coiffe factory of Limoges, France, and is shown on page 90 of Gaston's Third Edition Limoges book as being used in the years c.1891-1914

The marks are that of Gerard, Dufraisseix & Abbot who formed that partnership c.1900 and apparently used these marks c.1900-1941.  (Source:  Gaston's Limoges Third Edition, page 152.)  This is a beautiful chocolate cup and saucer with its striking gold and green decoration.  Notice also the beautiful shape of the body and the saucer rim.   It is NOT PERFECT.  It does have some wear of the gold around the rim of the cup which can be touched up; however, the wear serves as a testament to its age and is beautiful just as it is.  It is in otherwise perfect condition.

The Occupied Japan part of the mark dates it to the 1945-52 era just after World War II when Japan was occupied by the Allied forces.  This is a gorgeous little footed tea cup and saucer with bright hand-painted greens, pinks, and oranges in a Tobacco Leaf pattern.  Scalloped gold-trimmed rims on cup and saucer.  Gold ornate handle.  Almost perfect, but not quite, although we thought it was when we bought it.   While photographing the saucer, we discovered on the backside a faint hairline of approximately 3/8".  It definitely does not go through the top side and can barely be found -- we tried to capture in the picture below.  Cup is 2 3/8" tall x 2 7/8" across top opening.  Saucer is 4 15/16" diameter.  A real beauty and treasure and a wonderful collector's cup for any display.
