With this unseasonal warm weather, I was inspired to take out some of my favorite mint green pastel porcelain. These pieces are not a set but I grouped them together because they share this beautiful shade of green and complement each other so nicely. Each piece is dressed in soft pink roses and are so shabby chic.
I found this gorgeous mint green footed plate with handpainted florals at an antique shop on Central Park South just steps away from the Plaza Hotel. I have not been able to trace its origin and I suspect it could be a Limoges reproduction based on the markings which are new- “Enric Limoges” signed by the artist with some words in French.
This oblong dish is marked “P. K. Silesia” from the Konigszelt Porcelain Factory, Konigszelt, Silesia, Germany. According to the Directory of European Porcelain, this mark was used between 1860 and 1880. The teacup is unreadable except for the double headed eagle crest, the small saucer is by New Habsburg, Austria. (Source: efineantiques.com)
This low rimmed bowl is marked KPM (Krister-Porzellan-Manufaktur) from Waldenburg, Germany (1840-1895). Krister’s company became well known after winning medals at the 1857 and 1867 Paris exhibitions. It remained a family business until 1920.
