This type of maker's mark was used between 1912 and 1950. Looking at the design I would guess that the service was made sometime in 1920-30's. 6 large dinner plates 10 / 25.5 cm in diameter. 6 medium salad plates 9 / 22.5 cm.
6 starter plates 7.25 / 19.5 cm. 6 small side / tea / cake plates 6.25 / 16 cm. 6 rimmed soup plates / bowls 8.75 / 22 cm. Condition: used, small signs of wear such as fine surface scratches etc.
Damage: 1 salad plate is badly cracked, may not survive the journey, 2 side plates have some crazing and small hairline cracks, 2 rimmed plates have hairline cracks in the middle and few have crazing.

I post a lot of porcelain and glass, and even after careful packing, breakages may still happen due to some irresponsible couriers. Courier companies don't insure china so I cannot claim anything back for damages. The amount for each broken item in the set will be calculated by dividing the price of the whole set by the number of items in the set.If you find that your item has arrived damaged or doesn't seem to fit the description - please contact me within 5 days after receiving your item.
