Gorgeous “Mentone” pattern Thomas Sevres Bavaria hand painted tea service consisting of lidded teapot, covered sugar bowl, creamer, two teacups and two saucers. They are all artist signed and bear the Thomas Sevres Bavaria backstamp dating the pieces between 1908 - 1939, along with the words “Hand Painted” and "Mentone". This is a truly elegant set meant to impress and was therefore lavishly decorated.

The Mentone pattern is timeless - beautifully painted pink and mauve roses and rosebuds on a background of graduated light and dark green. The rims of the plates and saucers are trimmed in gold paint and the teacups also have gold rims and handles. Each teacup features one delicate rose bud painted on the inside - no detail was spared. The teapot has a gold trimmed handle and rim as does the sugar bowl and creamer. The delicately painted lids of the teapot and sugar bowl are topped with a pretty circular handle, also in gold. The overall effect of the fine craftsmanship is striking.

The set was well cared for and the overall condition is very good with a few light scratches here and there but no major paint loss to any of the items. There is also a faint blue mark inside one of the teacups that appears to have originated during the production process as it is underneath the glaze. The only condition issue present is the handle of the creamer as noted in photo four, which was broken and has been repaired. If desired, the handle could be professionally restored in the future but the current repair makes the damage fairly unnoticeable unless under close inspection.

The specific details of the individual pieces are as follows:

8” lidded teapot signed by A. John
3.75” covered sugar bowl signed by O. Wilke
2.75” creamer signed by O. Wilke
Two teacups, one signed by O. Wilke and one signed by A. John
Two saucers matching teacups listed above
