Seller: drdonsmith.dbay (3,290) 95.8%, Location: Flint, Michigan, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 192661165289 Description: This marvelous old tea set belonged to my aunt, who died shortly before WW2; and it has been in storage for over 70 years. My mother had told me that it dated from before the turn of the century, but I honestly have no idea of its actual age, nor do I know the style or pattern (In fact, I don't really know anything more about it at all). If anyone out there in eBayland has any information, please write and let me know. There are no chips of any kind, and no visible cracks; there seems to be a crack line in the top for the teapot, but it is in the white inner "neck" only (the part that fits down inside the teapot itself), and it only goes part way. I found one or two tiny "flea bites" in the finish, and what appears to be a small drop of white paint (it can probably be carefully removed, but I don't want to risk it with my eyesight). The inside of the two lidded pieces is still gleaming white, and they do not appear to have ever been used (the inside of the unlidded smallest piece has become dusty with age). The teapot is about 4.5" in diameter (not counting the spout and handle) and 6.5" tall; the sugar is about 4" in diameter (not counting the twin handles) and 5" tall; and the creamer is about 3.5" in both height and diameter (not counting the spout and handle). While the four 7.25" plates also have no chips or cracks of any kind, there are several small flaws in the finish (as shown in the lower left area in the photo); I believe they are due to improper storage rather than use, as we can find no signs of wear or "utensile scratch lines" in the finish. Additionally, the plates or dishes have no lettering or markings on the underside. As always, we will pay for the tracking and the mandatory insurance. Please feel free to make an offer on any of my listings. Please Note: As you may know, eBay now requires a shipping cost be entered when listing an item for international sale, and it is impossible to accurately do so without knowing the final destination. The price that I have entered is just a guess to cover the cost to anywhere in the world, and you will not be charged any more than that; however, if the actual shipping cost is less, then you will be issued a refund for the difference (we never add any extra for packaging or handling, so you will pay for the actual postage only). Fine Print: We invite questions, prefer PayPal (although we will accept all other forms of payment), ship USPS twice a week, and offer a full money back guarantee (less shipping, which we try to keep close to, or just below, the actual postal charges). No, we're not a store, a dealer or even a collector; it's just time for us to get rid of some of this stuff. International winners please wait for an exact shipping quote before paying. Shipping will be combined whenever possible. Thanks for your time. Type: Plates
