Truly an exquisite collector's set, this very attractive Pickard tea set is 23 carat gold over a floral background. The center panel of each piece is a black floral pattern. The teapot, creamer, and covered sugar bowl are in perfect condition, no chips, cracks, or flakes. The set has probably been only for display, not used. The rim of the teapot has two or three tiny rub marks in the gold where the lid rests (see picture). The lid of the teapot has two small extensions on either side so it will lock onto the teapot. The dimensions of the teapot are: 8 1/4" tall, and 9" wide, the sugar bowl is 5" tall, and 7" wide, and the creamer is 4 1/4" tall, and 6 1/4" wide. Each piece is bottom stamped with the Pickard "lion and shield" mark. This tea service would make a definite and elegant statement in your home!
