This is a special vintage, lush 22KT gold and floral tea set, comprising of six teacups and six saucers. Manufactured by Imperial during circa 1950, this charming tea set is not a common find and is beautifully designed. The teacups are generous in size and are an Empire shape. Both teacups and saucers are decorated with 22kt gold filigree and leaf designs. The centre of the teacups and saucers are decorated with a pop of vibrantly coloured peonies, forget me nots and delicate flowers.
Teacup height 6cm
Teacup diameter 10cm
Saucer diameter 14cm
CONDITION: In very good condition with a little wear to the gold gilding and a few stray spots of paint. One cup has a very slight blue paint mark inside the cup. All these characteristics add to the charm of the tea set and are commensurate with age (click on About Our China for more details on condition).
