This museum quality Tiffany porcelain tea set belonged to her grandmother who lived in India with her British officer husband during The British Raj (the rule by the British Crown from 1858 to 1947). The set has been packed away for decades, as my friend never used it, nor did her mother. She does, however, remember her grandmother serving tea once, 70 or 80 ago, but it hasn't been used since then.Hence, it's mint condition no chips, cracks, or signs of wear. It is unusual to find a tea set like this complete with tray, which measures 20.5 in diameter, and is quite large, heavy, and dramatic. The set includes: tea pot, creamer, sugar bowl with lid, six cups, and six saucers. It's an impressive, unique, unusual set.
It features the famous Blue Willow pattern, with the lyrics to the Scottish/British song "Auld Lang Syne" around the inside lip of each tea cup, as well as around the top of the tea pot and sugar bowl. The tray, tea pot, creamer, sugar bowl are all trimmed in gold (handles, tops, and edge of the tray). This is a complete, original, antique set in perfect condition.It's too valuable for me to pack it myself.
