This chocolate pot and a companion pitcher were in my aunt's house for as long as I can remember (I'm 72) occupying a prominent place in the living room along with her other collectibles. My research indicates it might be the RS Prussia Pink Roses pattern, but I'm not sure. I inherited the two items along with many other porcelain pieces in 2009.

I love its graceful lines and delicate painted roses. It is 10" tall and 5" wide at the widest part of the pot. It is in perfect condition.

If anyone is familiar with this pattern I would love to know more about it.

    In the 1994 RS Prussia collectors book by Gaston, she includes a list describing many of the floral transfers used on RS porcelain. I just did a quick read-through of the list, and found 52 different transfers that include roses. RS Prussia china was hardly ever sold as a set (unlike Limoges china where dinner services were the norm). RS porcelain was sold as giftware around Christmas time. They tried to provide a huge variety of styles and decors so the buyer had lots to choose from. Unlike Limoges dinnerware patterns, these transfers were not given names, except for catalog descriptions of the scenic transfers such as Cherry Blossom Time, or the Snow Birds. The roses and hydrangias pattern on your pieces is a well known floral decor from the 1905 to 1910 period.

    Your chocolate pot design is referred as snowball and roses.

    Thank you for your information, I really appreciate your letting me know. I have some more pieces of my aunt's that I will post soon. It is a real mystery since there are no markings that I can find anywhere but she bought it over seventy years ago.
