There was the year I was obsessed with chocolate pots. They were lined up in rows on my shelves. They still are. I purchased this one for $175.00 with the two matching cups and saucers. They are in exquisite condition. I think I paid too much for them because I loved them so much. On the other hand, I have seen similar sets go for $250-$400, especially if they have matching tea cups. At that price, those are probably in mint condition. This is not mint, but it is in GREAT condition with no chips, cracks or hazing, and the gold is luscious, swirled all over the pot and cups. I am almost hoping it doesn't sell, but I have to watch myself or I start hoarding my favorite things. We will see how it goes I am selling it for $120 which is 30% off of what I paid for it. I never used it because this one was my favorite set and I didn't want it to get any wear on the gold trim. It is so beautiful. If you need close-ups of any detail let me know.

However, I have moved away from the Shabby Chic look with pink roses and such. I have 10 other chocolate pots which I will be listing as I have the time. I never use them. I only use my teapots. So I think it is time to sell them and move on. I think it was a mistake to never use them. I hope that whoever buys them will enjoy having a chocolate party with a friend....and use it as it was meant to be used.

Chocolate Pots have an interesting history. They were made during a period of history when "chocolate houses" like our coffee houses of today were the rage in Europe. Only the wealthy could afford to dress up and enter a chocolate house to socialize, discuss politics, and sip a cup of hot chocolate. People purchased chocolate pots to partake of the indulgence at home. And now there are these gorgeous, lovely antique chocolate pots leftover from "the age of hot chocolate."

The most collectible ones are R.S. marked ones which are German and Prussian chocolate pots.....and Theodore Haviland Limoges, which is what I have here. Theodore Haviland china was from France. So this chocolate pot was made in France in the 1800's for a French family who used it "rarely" because it is in such great condition. Or else a traveler brought it back to the USA from France as a treasure from his/her travels, or for a family gift..

It would make a lovely present for a best friend's birthday, for Valentine's Day, or for Mother's Day. If you've ever had trouble finding a gift for your mother in law or your grandmother, this would be the unforgettable treasure.
