This set is really very clean and fresh looking with a white ground and beautiful floral designs in rather simple forms. I believe the pattern to be the 3671 Ravia Olympic Decor pattern, which has a vibrant multicolored floral design with a gold band around the inner rims of the cups. The gold band is repeated on the rims of the saucers and on the top rim of the coffee pot. Four small divots designed into the base at 90 degree angles create interest. The cups are 2 & 3/4" high and measure 3" at the mouth, excluding the handles. The saucers are 5 & 5/8" in diameter. The coffee pot is roughly 9 inches wide from handle to spout and stands a bit over 9 inches including the lid. The pot holds 5 to 6 cups of liquid. Creating a bit interest, the saucers which feature three floral designs each are variant in the flowers selected for those designs.
As this set was made in the German Democratic Republic, we have a window of manufacture. Several of the area porcelain companies were merged into one company in 1973 and the Graf Von Henneberg label was used. The Von Henneberg family was involved in porcelain, but not this label. At the height of the cold war, porcelain from this company was used in government offices to show-off the fine wares of East Germany. Since 2002 a much scaled down operation uses a mark called Hero Design.
All six cups with their saucers and the coffee pot are free from issues. No chips, crazing or the like.
