This deep blue transfer is composed of classical elements, including Greek key and anthemion borders, with the central motif being horses (winged and not), chariots, dancers and other figures, plus an assortment of other symbols. There is additional brown enameling on rims.
This pattern is shown in Coysh Vol. 1 where it is possibly attributed to Herculaneum.
No marks save impressed numerals (probably indicating shape or set component). English, ca. 1820
Size: Tray approximately 7 ½" long, 5 ½" wide, set 4 ½" assembled height
Condition: Chip to underside of tray, small chips on tureen edge and staining; cover has 1" crack from ladle cut-out. Excellent. Sounds worse than it looks.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
