What a wonderful set these three make! The pattern is a rather complex one, with several borders around a circular cartouche which contains a bird, possibly a kingfisher, perched on a branch. Beneath the bird geometric designs are repeated in the border pattern. The pattern used for boarders on these pieces also includes cranes or herons standing and in flight alternating with flora and geometric designs. Different types of flowers are also incorporated within the reddish brown transfer designs. The teapot has an ornate handle and final and ribbed designs on the spout. The reddish brown transfers have been placed on a soft creamy background making them stand out nicely. There is a small chip on the lip of the teapot and one on the lid. There are no cracks or major chips on these pieces. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
