This listing is for an Antique Unmarked Hand Painted Porcelain Lidded Chocolate Pot with Exceptional Hand Painted Floral Detail and Gilt Lattice and other Gilt detail , 10 inches tallest to the tom of the lid's finial , about 6 inches widest bulb diameter , 6 1/4 inches handle to spout , weighing 765 grams net weight including lid.. The inner rim which is matt and unglazed has acquired patina. I have swabbed it twice with a cotton swab and windex and it does come off and one can remove this patina by repeating this a couple of times although passed that , I will leave what remains of this patina for its new owner. I have not found any markings on this piece. Best conclusion I have reached is that it is probably an early Limoges piece.Majority of the people that I have asked suggest it is an earlier unmarked Limoges piece , one person suggesting that gilding is not as heavy as it would be if it was Limoges , and one person suggesting that it is an early Nippon Piece and yet another person suggesting that the detail does not go in line with Nippon pieces, but again majority suggest it it an unmarked Limoges piece. If you precisely know more , please let me know. It is in excellent antique as shown condition with no damage noted and some wear to gilt extremities. It has only been display and never used.
