This porcelain 8 piece set of tea for two was produced in Germany by Meissen in the 1870s. This is a first quality set. The tray is 17 inches long and 12 inches wide. The pot is 8 inches high. The set is painted with a striking pattern inspired by the Japanese, known as Imari. The colors are vivid and the decoration is bold. There is cobalt blue and iron red accented by shiny gilding. Condition: There is a sizable chip near the rim of the sugar bowl and a tiny nick on the underside of the lid. On the tray, there is a tiny chip on the shell shaped handle that is hardly noticeable. Considering the age and rarity, these defects are minor and may be corrected if desired.
