HERMES - "Toucans" pattern porcelain, featuring blue birds and yellow/green bands. Limoges porcelain, made in France. I would like to sell the following: (A) One Large 1 ¼ liter (5 1/4 cups) Tea-pot/Coffee-pot. Dimensions approximately: 5 ½” to lip, with 1 ½” cap-lid, i.e. 7” height including lid. (B) Four oversized Café-Latte Breakfast cups, with their saucers. Dimensions approximately: Cups: 3 1/2" (8.89 cm) height with 4 3/4” (12 cm) diameter mouth Saucer: 7" (17.78 cm) diameter
I received this porcelain, as a wedding gift, 1989, when I lived in New York City. These pieces have been virtually untouched, and set behind glass doors, in a china cabinet.
Hermes is a fashion house from Paris that began in 1837 with a specialty in leather. Since that time they have expanded into luxury goods, lfestyle accessories and home goods. The Toucan pattern was produced for Hermes china sets from 1991 - 2017. The fine china is porcelain with printed decoration. The large teapot at auction sells for an average of $300 and as high as $500. The oversized cup and saucers sell for $120 - $150 each at auction. The estimate is for all the pieces combined and it is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of matches. Retail asking prices may be higher and vary.
