New, original 1929 design
Black mocha (espresso) cup with saucer, part of the “Melon” collection designed for the Wiener Werkstätte by Josef Hoffmann coupling playfulness with elegance. It was initially produced in two colors: yellow and light blue and was painted in such a manner that Hoffmann’s strippes covered the shapes’ grooves. At the time, a luxury edition of the “Melon” service was also produced. The latter had a teal blue exterior while its interiors were coated in platinum. Hoffman’s “Melon” service remains among favorites to this day.
This unique service is now produced in twelve different colors. Please contact us for colors and custom options.
Cup 2.95" w x 2.36" d x 2" h
Saucer 3.54" w x 3.54" d x 0.75" h
Founded in 1718, the Augarten Porcelain is the second-oldest in Europe. Now as then, porcelain continues to be made and painted by hand. Each piece is thus unique.
