Wiener Werkstätte founder Josef Hoffmann designed the Melon Mocha Service for the Augarten Porcelain Factory in 1929, the first of a number of collaborations with the manufacturer.
Originally only available in two colors, a light blue glaze and the light yellow glaze seen here, Hoffman's design is both elegant and playful. The service was later produced in a black and white striped edition.
This lidded ceramic sugar bowl from Hoffmann's Melon Mocha Service is in excellent condition and is signed.
