Antique German Merry Christmas Child's Light Color Angel Tea Set
We are offering two sets of photos, the first displays the items better, the second is a better reflection of the actual color of the set.
A truly awesome find!
It's been many years since we've been able to offer a COMPLETE antique child's Christmas tea set!
Don't let this one get away. You won't regret the investment. The book price in 1996 for this set was between $1000 and $1400 for only 4 cups and saucers. See Lorraine Punchard's book Playtime Pottery & Porcelain, from Europe & Asia, page 103.
The tea pot measures 6-1/2" with the lid. Look at the wonderful double handle! The back has a cute picture of a riding horse on it. The sugar is 4" tall with the lid. There is a small crack in the lid, but it's not really visible when on the sugar. There are also a few small glaze covered chips that I believe were made during the manufacturing. The creamer is 4" tall and in great condition. Also included are six cups and seven plates. One cup has damage - see pictures. Other than that, the cups have some manufacturing flaws typical of children's china from the 1890's. The cups are 2-1/4" tall and 2-1/4" across the rim. There are 7 plates that are 5" across. There is no cracks or chips on these.
