Hand-painted Vieux Paris porcelain coffee set.
This perfectly-preserved Vieux Paris porcelain coffee set was a real find for us, since we've seen so few of late, especially sets in such impeccable condition. With beautifully hand-painted porcelain embellished with an elegant floral design ~ each piece is a work of art. Every single porcelain dish has been meticulously crafted by hand using traditional methods dating back to 18th century Paris. Then, each has been painted with vibrant roses, violets, forget-me- nots and other floral sprays. An opulent gold leaf hand-applied border decoration completes the captivating motif. This coffee service was designed as an fashionable table setting during the period of Napoleon III in the middle of the 19th century.
