Moss Rose or Rose Moss pattern

I have always loved the "rose moss" design. However, I have not done any research on when this design was popular or which company produced it. Do any of you have any idea? The tea pot above was given to me by Bell, my elderly friend who has an antique shop. It is very special because it has a music box in the bottom. It still plays, however, I do not know the tune. There is no print on the bottom of the pot either. Have any of you seen this kind? It is one of my favorite pieces.
A few more pieces of the rose moss pattern. The little coffee pot on the right side has a metal heating element inside of the bottom of the pot and a plug on the outside. I do not have the electric cord that I guess, came with it. Do any of you have any information on any of these pieces or the Rose Moss design? I would love to hear!

Love your tea pots, I have a moss rose tea set too, my aunt gave me years ago. I don't know anything about them except I love the set. My husband who loves to tease says they came from oatmeal boxes! Now I am courious!

I have a couple of pieces of the Moss Rose. I like the way it looks, very delicate and pretty.
