Art Deco Tea Set
Tea became the nation's beverage during Queen Victoria's reign. Lower taxes on tea and the expansion of plantations in India (the plant had originated in China) meant there was more affordable tea than ever before, making it accessible to more levels of society.
This tea set comprises: four cups, four saucers, four tea plates, two cake plates, and a cream and sugar bowl. The hand-painted design is Art Deco style with oriental influences.
The condition of all pieces is good.
