This graceful Rose Medallion four-piece tea set has similar designs on each piece, alternating panels with two designs – a floral design with pink roses and a design with people. Spouts, handles, rims, and the knobs on the lids are decorated with gold enamel and gold enamel is also used for highlights on the body of each piece. All of the handles are white porcelain with bamboo-like segments. The lids on the two teapots and the sugar bowl also have panels that echo the designs on the body. Except for the tall teapot, the other three pieces also have a central medallion with a pink rose and a gold enamel border. None of the pieces have cracks or chips.

The tea set was decorated in Hong Kong but the porcelain pieces were likely manufactured in the kilns of Jingdezhen. Porcelain decoration was a thriving business in Hong Kong from its founding in the 19th century until the 1970s and reached its peak in the 1960s. This set, with bodies made of translucent porcelain, probably dates from the 1960s.

The tall teapot is 7.75" high with lid, 4.75" wide, 7.5" spout to handle, and has a 3.125" diameter base. Near the outer tip of the spout, there is a small spot of red enamel paint that can be seen in the separate photo of the teapot. The lid for the tall teapot has a small hole in it to allow the aroma of the tea to escape. The bottom of the tall teapot is white with a red stamp "Decorated in Hong Kong."

The short teapot is 5.5" high with the lid, 6" wide, 9" spout to handle, and has a 4.25" diameter base. The lid for the short teapot has a small hole in it to allow the aroma of the tea to escape. The bottom of the short teapot is white with a red stamp "Decorated in Hong Kong" with a triangle above containing the initials "Y.T.".

The creamer is 4.875" high, 4.0" wide, 5" front to back, including handle, and has a 2.5" diameter base. Where the upper part of the handle connects to the body of the bowl, there is a small green spot where enamel paint from the floral border on the body touches the handle. The spot can be seen in the photo of the creamer that shows the floral panel. The bottom of the creamer is white porcelain with a red stamp, "Decorated in Hong Kong."

The sugar bowl is 5.75" high with the lid, 4" deep front to back, 6" wide, handle to handle, and has a 2.75" diameter base. Where the handle connects to the body of the bowl, one handle has some small spots where enamel paint from the body touches the handle. The bottom of the sugar bowl is white porcelain with a red stamp, "Decorated in Hong Kong."
