About half the pieces in the setting have some sort of damage, but there is enough remaining to be able to clean them up for sale. There are some really interesting bits and pieces in the set too:
|A very cute sugar bowl from the range with cane handle. I love the brass detailing on the ends of the handle.|
|I was trying to work out why an ice bucket would be with a tea set - but I think it is actually a "slop" bucket for the tealeaves |
and other leftovers which some old English tea services have too.
|This bowl on a pedestal is intruiging because it has a base which is convex - but I can not think of a reason to have a convex base in a bowl|
|A large, full size cake plate (on short pedestal)|
|Another curious piece that has me stumped. It is TINY- at most could hold say 4 lumps of sugar |
- the inside base is quite etched - so I am thinking a wedge of lemon maybe? or a single teaspoon?
