  • Pattern:  Unknown, Multi Floral Blue and Orange with Wheat
  • Made in: Germany, GDR
  • Vintage: 1970's - 1980's
  • Details:  A beautiful set of demitasse cups with their matching saucers from a very fine porcelain house, Colditz.  This set features multiple flowers primarily in Blue and Orange with golden wheat stalks.  The saucers are rimmed with embossed half moons on the top border, could even be described as "little fish scales".  The demitasse have the same scales border which gives them a really nice texture.  Both pieces are stamped on the back with the Colditz "CP" logo plus "Made in German Democratic Republic".  The saucer is numbered 84 and the cup is 47, we're guessing those are the mold numbers.  Based on the back stamp, we were able to date these to between the 1970's to the 1980's.  We don't know the name of this pattern, possible it was not named.  Excellent hostess gift, maybe add a bag of some wonderful espresso beans.  We also carry the matching little creamer which is the perfect size for these demitasse.  If you would like the two demitasse cups plus the creamer, (last photo), we offer a 10% discount for all 3 items.  Please Contact Us for discount code.

Colditz is a small town in the district of Leipzig, in Saxony, Germany. It is known for Colditz Castle, as well as White Colditz clay (coincidentally, same clay used by the famous Meissen porcelain factory).  In 1804 Thomsberger & Hermann established a ceramics factory.  In 1969 the company changed names to VEB Porzellancombinat Colditz, due to the communist regime having opened a porcelain factory years before with the VEB name, we guess they were incorporated, but unsure what actually happened.  After the fall of the Berlin wall, Colditz was privatized again, but unfortunately  they went bankrupt in 1998.
