Leuteritz B-Form Set

This is a rare tete a tete designed by Leuteritz for Meissen in the 1850's. This set is rare as it comes from the original period around 1860. This design is called B-Form and is quite popular especially in this most expensive version of the full gilding with cobalt and the handpainted scattered flowers. There is some raised design to the paste as well which is partially gilded with shiny gold and partially with a more matte version. A very elegant set and quite rare from this period. The spout on the coffee pot is very nice as well being in the shape of an animal's head. The set is in superb condition with no obvious wear to the gilding to report but there is a tiny shallow chip on the underside of the saucer rim which is no big deal and a larger chip to the rim of the sugar dish which was gilded over to hide it a little (see pics). Otherwise perfect and having the tray is amazing! All pieces are marked with the underglaze blue crossed swords mark underneath (the bottom of tray is unglazed) and the usual incised, impressed and overglaze colored numbers that one expects on Meissen pieces. All are first quality off course! The cups are just under 3 inches tall and 3.75 inches in diameter. The saucers are 6.375 inches in diameter and 1.125 inches tall. The creamer is 4.25 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter. The sugar dish is 4.5 inches tall including the lid and 3.875 inches in diameter. The teapot is 7.5 inches tall and 4 in diameter and the tray is 18.5 inches long, 13.25 inches deep and a bit over 1 inch tall. This is a very rare set to find and in super condition.
