Lavish in 24k Gold plated GKC Gareis, Kühnl & Co. Bavaria aka GKC Germany porcelain coffee/ tea set for six comes with tea pot and sugar bowl with matching lids, creamer cup, and 6 cups and matching saucers, a complete set of 17 pieces. A little history on this collection. This set is probably a century old, handcrafted by GKC Bavarian artisans in 1910s-1930s and belonged to her great grandmother when she left Germany and emigrated to the US East Coast.
It has been passed through many generations and eventually to California. The tea set mainly sat in the curio cabinet for showcase. Now its time for you to continue the tea sets story!
For a such a classic tea set, it has very minor wear, mainly on the tea pot with a little wear on the gold and faint scratches. Absolutely no stains, chips, or cracks. Porcelain is still sparkling white. The way the gold plated pieces shimmer in natural light is absolutely beautiful and its such a challenge to photograph because of its shine! Every piece has subtle details and to truly appreciate each piece will be in person as the gold reflects so much light.
The demitasse cups hold approximately 2oz with saucers 4 diameter. Tea pot is about 7.5 tall. Sugar bowl and creamer jar is approx 4 tall. Please refer the last few photos for size reference. I will be package the set very well; includes bubble wrap, air pillows, and foam to protect the travel to your home.
