Sold for $750
ca. 1967-1985, English, the service comprised of ten dinner plates, dia. 10-1/2", ten salad plates, dia. 8", ten bread-and-butter plates, dia. 6-1/2", ten dessert bowls, dia. 5-1/2", ten rim soup plates, dia. 8", ten footed cups, h. 2-1/2", with ten saucers, dia. 6", an open sugar bowl, h. 3", w. 7-3/4", a cream jug, h. 5-1/2", w. 5-1/4", and a gravy boat and stand, h. 4", w. 8-3/4".
**In overall very good condition. Much of the service, aside from the dinner plates, does not appear to have been used, or used very infrequently. The dinner plates do exhibit some very minor scratches and scuffs to their wells from cutlery use, but the rims and gilding are intact. One dinner plate has a "flea-bite" chip to its foot rim. On one soup bowl, there is a small horizontal crack that appears to be an innate firing crack that opened up. Another salad plate has an innate anomaly-raised glaze bubble to its underside.
