Antique Chocolate Teapot, Nippon Era Chocolate Pot, Tall Tea Pot 12439
Unmarked JAPANESE PORCELAIN CHOCOLATE POT......one I would definitely attribute to the Nippon area of manufacturers. This lovely pot has swirled designs in the porcelain mold, these are highlighted in cobalt blue and giltwork. The relief areas, the handle, the lid and the spout are based on Roccoco, or Late Baroque elements.
The body of the pot is delicately hand painted with blossom and berries.
