Pre 1933 the company was called Chapus et fils, which is Chapus and sons. Jean Chapus the father died in 1933 and the company was renamed as Chapus Brothers. Please see the history below.
The set is beautifully decorated with blue roses and a white daisy floral design. The shape is very Art Deco and very elegant lines. The handles have a gold trim and there is a crimped design at the base of all pieces with the exception of the saucers where it is in the centre. The cups and saucers can also be used to serve syllabub and mouses, or even an amuse-bouche.The set comprises of a Coffee pot, milk jug, sugar bowl and 6 cups and saucers. The set is in very good antique condition and looks to have been rarely used. The inside bottom of the coffee pot has some very light staining at the edges, barely worth mentioning.
Some of the gold trim is a little faded. The lid of the sugar bowl has a tiny little chip on the inside that cannot be seen when the lid is on. There is the odd little manufacturing blip or mark but nothing at all notable. Jean Chapus buys the china factory called St.
