Sometimes you just need a little chocolate in your life.
Or maybe something like a little
chocolate pot set will do.
The day I found this little treasure was a day out junking like any other.
Except that it wasn't.
The yard sale we stopped at was a mish mash of this and that
and lots of trinkets on the tables.
But you know how it goes- you have to get out and take a peek
just in case there might be a little hidden treasure in there.
I perused several tables working my way towards the front of the house
and there was the china table- which was covered in china and old Avon bottles.
But there were some interesting pieces mixed in as well.
Among the less exciting vintage pieces- I found several things that were speaking to me-
a collection of red and white transferware
and then there was this.
A little delicate pitcher
with the sweetest ribbon handle
delicate little florals and swirly gilded edges.
It even had the cutest flirty little skirted bottom.
It was a Limoges Chocolate pot and along with it - there were also
6 tiny little chocolate cups & saucers
That had the same details and pretty little purple flowers.
and the sweetest little children's tea set size
I didn't know that it was a chocolate pot or that is was from France and dated to around 1920.
Honestly, I really didn't know anything about it when I found it.
Except that I was in love with all those delicious details
and sweet charm.
So it came home with me.
I haven't actually used it for hot cocoa-
can you imagine how elegant it is that they would serve hot chocolate
in such amazingly detailed pieces back in the day?
It would definitely be a perfect piece to host a delightful cocoa party with.
