Extra Notes

This is a copy of a Regency design, which was popular throughout the 20th century. Without a maker's mark it is not possible to date this more accurately I am afraid. A nice looking set in apparently good condition, but tea sets, especially plated examples, are not as popular with collectors as they were twenty or more years ago and values have been falling accordingly.
