This is a wonderful set and very different from a lot of others. The Lanternier factory has used a scalloped shell like mold for the saucer with raised lines of dots coming down from the edge to the center. Around the well of the saucer the raised dots are in a flower shape. The two handled cup has a swirl design that starts from the bottom of the cup and swirls around. It also has the raised relief dots coming down from the rim. The dots are painted a wonderful turquoise blue color which really pop against the white background. Around the cups sides and the saucers rim beautiful pink, purple and yellow flowers and buds with greenery have been hand painted. There are two delicate pink rose buds on the inside of the cups rim adding a very special touch. Gold accents have been applied to the rims and slightly twisted handles of these pieces completing the set nicely. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
