This is a unusual 7 piece porcelain New Hall tea set. It consists of a large plate for pastries or tea sandwiches, sugar with lid, creamer, and four cups and saucers. All the pieces are marked
623 in red. This is an early set since the pieces are marked with the pattern numbers 623. New Hall began making bone china around 1812 and the pattern pieces began around 1000 according to some books. The tea cups have a herringbone handle and they have deep saucers with slightly slanted sides. The condition is incredibly good for a set of its age. The sugar has one repaired handle (picture shown) and the creamer has a hairline crack on the bottom (picture shown). The sugar top has a slight discoloration on one corner. The cups and saucers are pristine. The design is lovely and simple -- three small blue flowers with red accents over a large green leaf with three lobes. There is little paint missing.
If you are a collector of ceramics, or just want a nice set for decoration, this is a choice set!
