Nippon antique chocolate pot set - $145 (Nocatee)

Nippon Hand Painted Cobalt & Gold Floral Chocolate Pot with Cups & Saucers.

This is a gorgeous antique set of the chocolate pot with 4 saucers and 6 cups. The pot is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or nicks. It is almost 9 3/4" tall with the lid on, and the diameter of the bottom is about 5 1/2". The detail on these pieces is extraordinary, with the delicate pink and lavender flowers, raised gold dots and beautiful handle and finial. Abundant gold accents enhance this set.

The cups are elegant and light. Saucers measure almost 5” and the cups are 2 3/4” tall. Unfortunately, two saucers did not survive a fall, and one of the others has a repaired crack (note the pictures), but you can display it so it does not stand out. Otherwise, all the others, and all the cups in good condition with no flaws, except a small amount of wear.

I've had this chocolate set for over 40 years, but am starting to purge to downsize. Otherwise, I would hold on to it. It's not easy to find so many intact pieces. The right collector would be proud to grab this!
