This attractive porcelain tea set is richly decorated in the Imari Japan style. It was made in the popular "London Shape" about 1817. Although unmarked, it can be identified as Mayer & Newbold by comparing it to plate 1159 of the "Directory of Teapots" by Michael Berthoud and Richard Maskell. The shape matches, as does the unusual feature of a 13 hole strainer. Mayer & Newbold operated from Market Place, Lane End, Staffordshire c.1817-1833.
The set is in good condition. The teapot is about 10-1/2" long and 6" high. . There are interior chips to the mouth of the teapot (which aren't seen with the lid in place), and interior staining. The sugar also has an interior chip to the mouth (which can't be seen with the lid in place), and interior staining. The creamer has a small chip to the exterior lip, and has no staining.
