Mother/Daughter Garden Tea Set—Pink Majolica (27 pieces)

This complete 27 piece Mother/Daughter Tea Set is destined become a family heirloom! Hand-made in Portugal by Bordallo Pinheiro Pottery, this beautiful pink, heavily glazed Majolica ceramic tea set has the most amazing detail and feel. Raised details include bunnies, lettuces, carrots, celery, strawberry vines and more. Plate and platter edges are designed to resemble lettuce or celery leaves. Handles resemble vines. Visions of Peter Rabbit in Mr. MacGregor’s garden are sure to come to mind! The set consists of a 6-cup teapot, covered sugar, creamer, pedestal cake or pastry stand, oblong platter (can hold the sugar and creamer or serve tidbits), 4 adult tea cup and saucer trios and 4 child tea cup and saucers. Just too lovely! Only 1 set available!
