Dresden Coffee Set, Pretty Floral Design, Demi Tasse.
Four demi tasse cups, saucers, sugar and cream jug, decorated by Carl Thieme. The cups, saucers and sugar are Dresden, the creamer is a ring-in, being Fürstenberg fine porcelain- but it fits in nicely. The Dresden marks are for Carl Thieme of Potschappel (Dresden), who was a decorator of Dresden ware using this mark from 1872 onwards. The flowers are hand painted, and the gilding work, especially on the handles is lovely. One saucer also has an impressed Dresden crown. Each duo has a different floral pattern. Self-embossed basket-weave pattern to rim areas. The sugar bowl has a rose as the finial on the lid. All these would probably date around 1930s to 1950. The Fürstenberg creamer has a similar floral design, and also gilded rims, flashings etc. It dates from circa 1950 to 1980s, being stamped West Germany. Cups are 6 cm high and 5.75 cm diameter. Saucers are dishes, and 12.5 cm diameter. Sugar is 8.5 cm high and 7.5 cm diameter. Creamer is 7.75 cm high and widest part of body is 6.75 cm diameter. All in excellent condition.
