Antique Child's Porcelain Tea Set Florence Upton Two Dutch Dolls & A Golliwogg For Sale

Antique Child's Porcelain Tea Set Florence Upton Two Dutch Dolls & A Golliwogg

Presented here for your offerding pleasure is this very rare antique child's porcelain tea set featuring hand painted scenes form Florence Kate Upton's 1895 childhood classic story book "The Adventures Of Two Dutch Dolls And A Golliwogg." At one time I believe I had researched and identified who the manufacturer of this set was, but I've hadit forso long I don't remember the information. Even though the pieces are not marked, make no mistake that this is a factory produced item, likely made in Germany, but possibly England.

Thisset consists of 8 pieces, though I'm sure a whole dinner service may have been made. Here we have a coffee or tea pot with lid (4 1/4" tall), two cups (1 3/8" tall)and two saucers (3 3/4" in diameter), and two plates (3 5/8" in diameter). Each of five pieces have individual paintings (not decals) of variousscenes from the book. Theillustration with the gray wooden horse is repeated--once on a plate, and once on a cup. The details of the dolls, toys, and a London guard,are quite extraordinary, and oh-so charming! These scenes are painted against a pale yellow background, but I have also seen this set with a light green background, as well. Each piece is signed on the bottom with the painter's identifying number--in this case 56--in different colors, just depending on what color the painter had on his or her brush at the time. The condition is mint with no chips, cracks, repairs, or hairlines!

Just for fun and inspiration, I show the set with various dolls (not included). For size reference, the pretty antique Kestner doll is 19" tall, andmy handsome and well loved Golly is 13" tall. In the last picture can be seen a similar item of interest--this time a Robertson's Golden Shred advertising egg cup in the form of a golliwog! While not included here, it can be seen in a separate listing. Please take a look, keeping in mind that I would be happy to combine shipping!
