THIS DELIGHTFUL AND HIGHLY COLLECTABLE, HAND PAINTED, ANTIQUE 21 PIECE SET OF FRENCH FAIENCE POTS WITH LIDS AND MATCHING PLATES, IS ALL IN GENERALLY VERY GOOD CONDITION. I HAVE NOTICED THAT INSIDE 1 CUP THERE ARE 3 FAINT HAIRLINES AND ON ONE OF THE FEET ON ANOTHER CUP THERE IS A CHIP AT THE POINTED END. THERE IS CRAZING SHOWING ON SOME OF THE PIECES. EACH POT AND PLATE INCLUDES THE DECORATION OF THE CREST FOR PAU IN FRANCE. FAIENCE IS NATURALLY SOFT SO THERE MAY BE OTHER SLIGHT ROUGHNESSES ON SOME OF THE PIECES. I THINK THESE SETS WERE SOMETIMES USED AS CUSTARD OR CHOCOLATE CUPS BUT THEY COULD ALSO BE USED FOR SOUP. THE TRADITIONAL FRENCH COLOURING IS VERY DECORATIVE AND THIS SET WOULD LOOK GREAT IN ANY KITCHEN OR ON ANY DRESSER. EACH POT MEASURES 10.5CMS IN HEIGHT WITH THE LID IN POSITION AND 7CMS ACROSS THE TOP RIM. THE PLATES MEASURE JUST OVER 16CMS. THE PRICE GIVEN IS FOR THE 21 PIECES TOGETHER. I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO FIND OUT WHO THE MAKER IS. THESE LOVELY AND RARE ITEMS WOULD MAKE A BRILLIANT ADDITION TO ANY FRENCH COLLECTION. PLEASE EXAMINE ALL OF THE PHOTOS CAREFULLY.
