Superb 3-pc Antique Art Nouveau RS Prussia Tea Set White Tiffany Satin Finish. Mold is breathtaking in having most of the most desired and attractive elements in mold, such as footed scalloped base, ornately scalloped rims on all pieces with body in sections of high relief, with extraordinary attention to detail from the teapot spout to handles to lovely finials on lids, all in various degrees of relief. Paint and glaze on this set are the most desirable and valuable of RS Prussia works, incorporating the subtle, muted luster achieved by using a satin finish to glaze, known as the Tiffany finish, which is a metallic iridescent finish made popular by Louis Comfort Tiffany in his wares during the Art Nouveau era, which produces the finish we find on this set. Over the pearled white base color are hand painted flowers in soft pastels and jeweled beaded encrusted dots scattered about, with shades of greens in the concave areas of basic mold and scalloped edges, highlighted with just a very conservative amount of gold gilding to accent, but not detract from the paint, maintaining the satin finish throughout. Set is in excellent vintage condition, the only flaw being a 3mm x 1mm (NOT CM) tiny nick on rim of sugar bowl (Photo 12), and no other chips, cracks, or damage to any of the other pieces, though there is some discoloration to interiors which do not detract from beauty, and commensurate with age and fine care.
Measurements are as follows (with lids). 6" (15cm) High x 8 1/4" (21cm) Wide from spout to handle. 5" (13cm) High x 6 1/2" (17cm) Wide from Handle to handle. 3 1/2" High to tip of spout x 5" Wide from spout to handle. Please look at all photos as they are an integral part of description.
