Description
bain-marie set
France - Early 20th century - Porcelain

An elegant antique bain-marie set, decorated with a pink ground behind panels with flowers and birds. The set consists of 3 porcelain compartments: a base for placing a candle, which transfers the heat to a suitable basin that has to be filled with water, and in which the top mug fits. These kinds of sets were used to melt chocolate. The set dates from the early 20th century and is marked at the bottom with a blue mark over the glaze.
Condition: excellent, completely intact, only minimal wear of the gold-plated layers.

The set will be packed with the utmost care and shipped with track and trace.
