This Royal Chelsea three-piece smoking set Includes a cigarette holder and two ashtrays dotted with dainty pink roses and smaller purple flowers on curving stems with delicate green leaves. Gold trim finishes the edge of each round ashtray and the rim of the cigarette holder. Each ashtray has a pair of cigarette rests at the four compass points with a pretty embossed scroll design between each.
The porcelain cigarette holder measures 2-1/2 inches in diameter and 2-1/4 inches tall. Each shallow ashtray is 4-inches in diameter and about 1/2-inch deep. Each piece is stamped in black with the arching "Royal Chelsea" followed by an anchor and the words "English Bone China, Made in England." There are also small artist's marks in green and gold.
Made by Royal Chelsea sometime between 1943 and 1961, all three pieces of this snow white Bone China smoking set show only very minor wear.
