12 Pc Antique Vtg Czech Art Deco Hand Painted Porcelain Tea Set W 4 Cups & Tray:
This is a vintage tea or coffee set made by the Bohemia Ceramic Works factory in Czechoslovakia. Based on the hallmarks, I believe it was made sometime between 1921-1945, probably in the 1920s. It is a beautiful, Art Deco pattern with rich golds and silvers applied to a bright white ground. Heavy gold treatment covers the handles, lids and spout. The set includes 12 separate pieces:
- coffee pot w/ lid, 8-1/2" ht
- sugar bowl w/ lid, 4" ht
- cream pitcher, 3-3/4" ht
- 4 cups, 2-3/4" diameter
- 4 saucers, 5-1/8" diameter
- tray, 13" x 8-1/2"
Note the pretty shape of the tray, most unusual.Although all of the pieces are an exact match, there are 3 different hallmarks on the set (see last photo). The cups and saucers are hallmarked by the Bohemia Ceramic Works factory with a lion trademark and "Donatello" (which describes the shape of the porcelain, not the pattern). The pot/sugar/creamer are hallmarked "Japan". The tray is hallmarked with an MZ, Czechoslovakia stamp. Yet all of the pieces are the identical pattern. This suggests that, as was common in the early 1900s, a talented artist purchased blanks and hand painted these -- they are probably one-of-a kind!All of the pieces are in truly outstanding condition with little wear to the heavy gold, and no chips, cracks or repairs.The set will be carefully packed and fully insured.
