Many little girls at school hold splendid tea parties for their closest friends and best dolls- but the lucky miss who owns this set will dwarf them all! Her party is sure to be the toast of the season, whispers flying over slates about the charming hand-painted pink and yellow rooster designs on the soft-paste porcelain. There are even cunning little bowls for candy or nuts. Times change, but a miniature world will always delight the young- and young at heart!
This hand painted antique soft paste pottery tea set is desirably decorated with roosters! Each piece is ever so slightly different in its decoration— one of the perks of hand painting! The set comes with (8) plates/saucers (3) tall presentation stands for sandwiches (2) long presentation plates (1) shorter presentation stand (1) creamer pot (1) presentation bowl for sides (1) lidded pot and (1) larger long presentation plate. There are no cups and no tea pot. This set is scaled down for children or dolls.
Marks: an infinity symbol or ‘8’ on most pieces of the set
CONDITION: This set is made of soft paste, which has a lower firing temperature than porcelain and is more prone to chips. While in generally good condition, most of the pieces of this set have some small amount of chipping and there is some cracking on a few of the pieces. Please examine all the photos as they are an integral part of the description. Overall this set looks great and would display excellently as a table set scene or in a cabinet!
