This set would have been used for snack times - coffee and slice of coffee cake, tea time, or just straight up dessert service with a tasty beverage on the side. This set is in great shape, save one chipped plate (pictured). Otherwise, these are in great vintage condition. Milk glass decorated and rimmed in 22K gold. Plate measures 10.25" long x 7" wide. Cup measures 2.5" tall x 3.75" wide.
