We are, at present, offering 48 plates (of which eight are marginally smaller), four soup bowls, one large oval platter, a fish platter, three tureens, a sauce boat and six tazzas.
The smallest tureen has a repair to one side; the ends of the handles on the sauce boat are repaired, and some of the blue ‘feathering’ around a few of the plates has been touched in.
