I can see this set being used years ago to serve cherry brandy! This set is beautifully hand painted with ripe red cherries. The artist has painted a large cluster of red cherries on both sides of the decanter and cups. Amongst the cherries he has extended branches with smaller clusters down and around the sides. Each cluster has several ruby red cherries painted on stems nestled by beautifully bluish green leaves and brown branches. The background of this wonderful artwork consists of creams, browns and blues all flowing graciously together. The underside of tray is signed (illegible) and dated 1914. Note that 4 of the 8 cups have some damage (hairlines, rim flake & repair) but 4 are good; all 8 will be sent, as the others still display well enough. Set is in otherwise excellent condition, with only minor wear to gilding. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
