A rare early coffee pot, unusual creamer in a similar paneled shape, six dessert or luncheon plates, and six cups and saucers comprise this set, missing only the sugar bowl.

The set is decorated with his familiar flowers and flower buds motif with the yellow squiggles ground - including some stray yellow paint marks inside the cream pitcher. The condition of all the pieces is very good to excellent, taking into account they were rather crudely made. The coffee pot is in excellent condition. No additional charge for shipping in the US.

The mug is in perfect condition and measures four inches in height. It is marked with the initials KM rather than with Murray's full signature.
