An antique Darte Freres French porcelain tea set beautifully decorated with flowers, gold, and cabochon jewels. Rare Darte Freres Tea Set Floral & Cabochon Jewels French Porcelain Old Paris. Offered for sale is this rare antique Darte Freres French porcelain tea set. The decoration is beautiful. There is a large teapot, a covered sugar, a milk jug, a waste bowl, 4 cups, and 4 saucers. The set has some condition issues so I’m taking offers on it. Please excuse the reflections in the pictures. The teapot is just over 10.5 inches long from handle to spout, and is approximately 7.75 inches tall. The jug/creamer is just under 6.5 inches tall to the top of the handle. The sugar bowl is just over 6.75 inches wide from handle to handle. The waste bowl is just under 7.5 inches diameter, and is approximately 3.5 inches tall. The saucers are just under 5.25 inches diameter. The cups are just under 2.5 inches tall. There is gold wear to handles, finials and interiors. The waste bowl has 2 hairlines on the rim that are hard to see on the outside because of the black – the pen is pointing to them. The milk jug has a rim flake with an associated 1.5 inch long hairline – the pen is pointing to this too. The teapot has a crack on bottom and 2 chips on the underside of the lid, but the main body decoration is in very good condition. The saucers have wear to the black. Please see the close up pictures. There are some typical incised potter’s marks that you get on antique French porcelain. Unfortunately, we have no control over that. Please feel free to message us with any questions!
