NOTE: READ THIS TO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GETTING! Ever been to a tea party with The Mad Hatter? There is no uniform order in his house! Everyone gets a unique tea cup to enjoy, and that's part of the fun. This tea set was pulled together for just this sort of occasion, when you're in a "Mad Hatter" mood. Would be the ideal tea set to pull out for a party of Red Hat Society ladies. While it certainly appeals to your whimsical side, the price makes it so reasonable that your right-brain side is happy, too. The elements of this set change from time to time, depending on availability, and so do not match the current image. At the moment this 24-piece bargain set includes the beautiful Cobalt Frieze large teapot, small teapot and Sugar Bowl (no gold = dishwasher and microwave safe), a Terracotta Frieze creamer, plus a Forest Violet cake plate, candy dish, and 6" Dessert Plates (6 of them!), plus 1 tea cup and saucer each from these patterns: Reflections, Forest Violet, Blue Bells Bone China, Cobalt Frieze (with gold), Golden Rim Wind shape, and Golden Rim May shape. Instead of playing musical chairs, play musical cups, and all the ladies will have a different cup each time round. All items made by the Imperial Porcelain Manufactory in St. Petersburg, Russia. Enjoy!
