This particular set is perhaps the "Finest" and the Most Exquisite "One-of-a-Kind" Decanter Sets that I have had the pleasure to own.

Each rose, berry, fine leaf, and stem is painted with the utmost delicacy creating an utterly breathtaking still life palette ~ one can almost smell their intense piercing fragrance. The Artist has truly captured these wonderful roses in full bloom in a gorgeous garden bouquet, china painted in the naturalistic floral art style which was taught by the great old masters of American porcelain artistry around the Turn-of-the-Century.
The Gorgeous Touch of Turquoise Blue Background is Breathtaking ~ with wonderful delicate leaves hand painted ever so gently. The Heavy Roman Coin Gold and Artistry Raised Gold Scroll Work is Simply Stunning on every piece ~ You will Definitely and Absolutely be Overwhelmed by this set ~ it is Exceptional beyond words.............. A truly Remarkable and Outstanding French Porcelain Set to add to your collection.
