Exquisite fine quality Porcelain Tea Cup Trio, beautifully edged in coin gold, made by Porzellanfabrik Thomas, which was an independent subsidiary of Rosenthal. The teacup, saucer and cake or sandwich plate were masterfully hand painted and signed by the porcelain artist on the bottom of both plates. The set dates to 1908. A stunning design of clusters of Red Currants decorates each piece, completely hand painted by a skillful artist, on a soft ground with green, blue, lavender, brown, gold and apricot.
The Cup and both Saucers have been decorated in beautiful Roman Gold along the rim, the lovely elegant handle is also decorated in beautiful Roman Gold. Inside the cup, a lustre glaze makes this set exceptional! Each piece was individually hand painted, each slightly different from the others in placement of the berries, leaves and branches. Present to your host or hostess as a luxury gift, or display this treasure with your collection of antique Limoges and other high quality porcelain.
