HERE IS A BEAUTIFUL LIMOGES STUDIO HAND PAINTED CHOCOLATE POT SET BY LEWIS STRAUSS AND SONS (LS&S) FROM THE TURN OF THE CENTURY. IT FEATURES MAGNIFICENTLY PAINTED CRANBERRY/MAUVE SHADED FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS AND THE MOST INTRICATELY RAISED GOLD GILDING WE'VE EVER SEEN ON A LIMOGES SET. THE POT IS 10.5" TALL AND THE FIVE CUPS ARE 3" TALL. THE SET HAS ONE ISSUE; A SMALL CHIP AT THE BASE OF THE POT WHICH IS HARDLY NOTICABLE (SEE IMAGES). OTHERWISE, IT IS IN OUTSTANDING CONDITION WITH NO CHIPS CRACKS HAIRLINES OR REPAIRS OR GOLD LOSS. DECORATING MARKS BY STUDIOS SUCH AS LEWIS STRAUSS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF PROFESSIONALLY PAINTED PORCELAIN AND THIS SET IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF SUPERIOR ARTWORK. LEWIS STRAUSS AND SONS OVERGLAZE DECORATING MARK IN BLUE (1890-1915) AND A. LATERNIER MARK 4 (1891-1914) IN GREEN UNDERGLAZE.
