Today we are delighted to offer for sale a beautiful, rarely found set of Lenox porcelain in the form of a Chocolate Pot and 4 impossibly hard to find matching Demitasse Cups and Saucers.
This set is in the desirable Ming pattern, tastefully decorated with a Chinoiserie influenced band featuring cherry blossom branch and birds of paradise interspersed with a decorative scroll design executed in French blue. The pot also depicts one yellow butterfly and a repeating pattern of cherry blossoms on the front, back, and lid of the pot. All pieces are edged in gold. All of the pieces are marked with the old black Lenox mark consisting of the L in a laurel wreath plus “Lenox MING Design Patented,” dating to the early 20th century.
Set presents beautifully and is in very good antique condition, with very minimal wear commensurate with age and light use. No chips or cracks. Add sophisticated Chinese elegance and warmth to any tablescape with this wonderful chocolate pot set.

Cups: 2-7/8″ height, 2-3/4″ across including handle
