Antique CARLSBAD Empress Josephine Gilt Porcelain Chocolate Tea Set 13 pcs +TRAY. Carlsbad is a city in Czechoslovakia, which was home to several fine porcelain factories that made export porcelain. Carlsbad or Karlsbad was a mark used on china made by several factories in Germany, Austria, and Bavaria. This fine chocolate set is finely crafted and detailed. The set is composed of a rarely found round tray, chocolate pot, and all six cups with saucers, all done in the Austrian 19th century Rococo style, which favorited the combination of white and gold to accentuate the rocaille forms of the Rococo. The set features extensive gilded details with delicate pink floral accents. The set is adorned by a melange of cameo portraits of members of Royalty and nobility. The round tray features a center medallion portrait of Josephine, Viscountess of Beauharnais, Duchess of Navarre, and 19th century Empress Consort of the French. The chocolate cups all feature medallion portraits of earlier aristocrats from the royal court of Louis XVI.
The pieces feature lovely rocaille-style handles, and are all marked on the bottom "Carlsbad China Austria". There are a few normal minute manufacturing flaws/unevenness to thickness of porcelain but remarkably no chips, cracks or repairs.Item(s) will be professionally packed to prevent damage in transit.
