Antique miniature porcelain tea set, unusual shape, service for 6, with a teapot, sugar bowl and a creamer. I have done a lot of research on this set. I am unable to find this shape anywhere, but I am hedging my bets and calling it unusual instead of rare, just in case I’m missing something. Saucer is 3.125 inches, plates are 3.375 inches. Cups are 2.25 inches including handles, 1.5 inches deep. Sugar bowl is 3 inches to top of cover’s handle, and 2.25 inches by 2.25 inches. Cream pitcher is 2.75, to end of handle, 1.75 wide 2.25 deep. Teapot is 4.5 inches spout to end of handle, 2.25 deep 2.5 wide. It must be noted that one cup is made of a bisque or other clay substance as are two saucers. There are also stable hairlines on two plates, otherwise I see no chips or cracks and the hand painted colors in the pattern are bright and clear. There are no marks on the set.
