SOLD--Royal Copenhagen Porcelain American Founding Fathers Coffee Service

0.00

A Royal Copenhagen porcelain coffee service, in its original wood and silk- lined presentation travel box, comprising a coffee pot, four coffee cups and saucers, a creamer, a covered sugar bowl and a tray, each with white ground and black and gilt decoration, depicting silhouettes of American presidents and signers of the Declaration of Independence, within a band of gold, on a mottled black glazed ground and decorated with a band of grape vines and leaves.  Signed with hand painted and printed Royal Copenhagen marks, Danish, circa 1976.

This service was originally designed as a gift to President Ford on the occasion of the United States Bicentennial celebrations in 1976 and then was produced in a limited edition of 300. The American Founding Fathers represented in the service are: Richard Henry Lee, Thomas Paine, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, on the coffee cups, James Madison on the covered sugar bowl, John Jay on the creamer, Benjamin Franklin on the coffee pot and Thomas Jefferson and George Washington on the diamond shaped tray.

The high quality of the porcelain and its decoration are commensurate with the best of Royal Copenhagen. The unusual American subject matter makes this set a rarity. As functional as it is, we think it also makes for wonderful decoration.

Height: 9 1/4"    Width: 16 3/4"    Depth:12 3/4"
