Please read condition details below fully *.

A 21 Piece Set consisting of:
6 x Teacups
6 x Saucers
6 x Tea Plates
1 x Creamer Jug
2 x Cake/ Sandwich serving plates.

Condition

*On the whole this is all in very good - excellent condition.
There will be slight firing and pattern imperfections commensurate with the age and manufacturing processes of that time. I can also see some slight staining, or colour change to the creamy glaze which may just be ageing because the set looks to have had very little use.
The only real flaws that I can see are that 2 of the saucers have short hairline cracks to the glaze on the reverse, these do not come through to the fronts of the saucers, 1 saucer does however have a hairline crack that shows both front and back and which is discoloured with age so is visible. However this particular crack is just off centre to the saucer and is almost lost in the design. Also as you can clearly see, one of the larger plates has an age discoloured crack across the middle which does show on both sides.
