This is a very rare and beautiful Vintage Royal Delft Koninklijke Porceleyne Fles Dutch porcelain delft blue flow Ware tea set w/ 14.75 x 10 serving tray (18 wide with handles), consisting of 5 tea cups & saucers, tea pot, coffee pot, cream & sugar set, and of course a wonderful reticulated metal framed porcelain tray with metal handles. Im not certain of the age of the set, but I believe it was manufactured in the 1960s, but that is merely an educated guess based on the age of some of the newer pieces in the collection that this set was a part of, as well as another set that I found online that made the same claim. It was made in Holland, and the quality of the set is fantastic. It is hand-painted, and there are no cracks or chips, and other than light crazing on the UNDERSIDE ONLY of the tray, this set is in flawless condition. Unless I happen to miss something minute, this set is virtually flawless!
I do not believe the set was ever used, it appears as though it was stuck in a China cabinet, and never removed. There are not even any utensil marks or abrasions on the insides of the cups. Please note that I tried to capture the crazing on the underside of the tray, but it was hard to get in a picture, so just be aware that it is there, and it is the only flaw (arguably) that I could find. Because Im not 100% familiar with this set, I welcome anybody who can correct any part of my description to message me, and I will happily make the needed corrections. My description is based on what I have found by researching, and by observations of the set, and I try my best to be as accurate as possible.
Thank you very much for your interest, and please message me if you have any questions, or if you would like additional pictures of this beautiful set.
