Our stunning vintage Thomas Germany porcelain tea trio is elegantly decorated with gold trimmed, gleaming black paint set against crisp white porcelain and embellished with gorgeous, realistically detailed yellow and tangerine-orange hued rose buds. Still attached to its leafy stem, the delicate rose bud's petals curl at the edges, ready to burst into full bloom.
This Thomas Germany trio set includes the matching teacup, saucer and dessert plate, all in excellent vintage condition. The pieces are marked Thomas Germany in green, and were thus manufactured between 1908 and 1939.
The teacup has a pedestal foot, with a thin line of gold paint applied to its graceful handle, the footband, the pedestal and the rim. Embellished with beautiful rose bud transfers on the black exterior and the white interior, the teacup measures approximately 2-1/4" tall, 4-3/4" from handle to rim, and a bowl with a 4" diameter.
The matching saucer measures 5-3/4" in diameter. A wide, 1-3/4" black band surrounds the white porcelain center which is adorned with a 2" rose bud. The saucer's verge and rim are trimmed with gold paint.
The 7-3/4" dessert plate has a 1" wide black band which is trimmed with gold paint on both sides. The plate's white porcelain center boasts a 3" rose bud.
BRIEF HISTORY:According to the esteemed site PM&M - Porcelain Marks and More, the first porcelain factory in the town of Marktredwitz, Bavaria, Germany opened in the year 1872 and operated as Porzellanfabrik Jaeger, Thomas & Co. Fritz Thomas made the decision to leave the business in 1898. Jaeger continued his successful business as 'Porzellanfabrik Jaeger & Co.' In 1903 Fritz Thomas founded Porzellanfabrik Thomas & Ens, with his investment partner Ens. Based on the ideas Thomas introduced, success was nearly instantaneous and the new company quickly caught the attention of the 'Porzellanfabrik Ph. Rosenthal' company in Selb. Only five years later, the porcelain factory, by then called "F. Thomas, Marktredwitz", was acquired by Rosenthal.
