For your consideration is this beautiful dinner service from my own home. I am selling my house and I will not be able to take this gorgeous, large service with me. 150 pieces!!!...It was made by Hutschenreuther from Northern Bavaria Germany. This company began manufacturing porcelain in 1814. The Hutschenreuther "Mark of the Lion" is a symbol of Excellence. From 1860, they produced gilded porcelains that were hand painted.
I would date this service as circa 1890-1910. It is a fine white porcelain and hand decorated with gold. There is a monogram...."handed down in the family"....I always thought.
Following is the list of pieces: 21 Dinner Plates 20 Luncheon Plates 12 Salad Plates 8 Dessert Plates 7 Cream Soup Bowls/8 Saucers 17 Tea Cups/18 Saucers 9 Espresso Cups/13 saucers 8 Custard Cups/8 Saucers 7 Small Fruit Bowls
