    Trying to help a friend and she sent me one photo. I have requested a photo of the base if she can get me one. I'm wondering if the covered sugar and chocolate/hot water pot (?) is RS Prussia or Japanese. I love the moulded flowers. I think the creamer and sugar with the Ruffles edges may be Japanese, but again, I dunno. Help, please, if you can!

    I like the sugar and hot water (I think) - none of them make me think Japanese, I would have thought Germany or maybe Austria.

    I agree, I don't think Japanese either.

    Why do you think that is a sugar? I would have thought biscuit. Really stunning.

    Is she selling or buying?
    I would want a closer look at the Jasperware piece.

    Wendy, I have a RS Prussia book at the store, I'll go through it tomorrow to see if the shapes are in it.
    Cluttered, I believe sugar bowls used to be quite large, especially compared to sets we have now.

    CX -
    Yes they were. Most sugars hold about 1C. Older sugars held about 2C. This one seems so much bigger, but it might be the angle of the camera.

    That is a chocolate pot yet the jar goes over halfway up. To me it looks too big for a sugar.

    I don't have dimensions unfortunately. Thanks for looking up RS Prussia, CXgirl! Possibly a biscuit jar, but if that's a hot water pot it would be shorter, I think, than a chocolate pot and then that would be a sugar. I'm hoping to get a pic of the bases.

    I think I found the chocolate pot. In the Marples' RS Prussia, The Early
    Years, pg. 125, plate 474. Chocolate pot, Mold OM 152, 9" high. It looks like a fairly extensive line so my guess is the matching piece is a biscuit barrel.

    In looking through other items listed as RS Prussia, I see quite a few flower molds. Iris, Roses, Carnation, and Lily. I wasn't able to find a Daisy.

    What type of flower do you think that is?

    I'm thinking that this is most likely from the RS factories, whether RS Prussia or one of the others, I don't know.

    Ha, accidentally hit post too soon. I dunno what kind of flower it is, but I'll go with chocolate pot and biscuit barrel. I'll get this info to my friend.

    You're welcome! I looked for the creamer and sugar but didn't have any luck. I doubt those are RS Prussia but wish I could see the design straight on.

    Glad you found it Don, none of the pieces are in the book I have - RS Prussia by Gaston.
