THIS IS A GORGEOUS OLD SET OF FINE PORCELAIN CHINA, 90 PIECES IN TOTAL, MADE BY HABSBURG CHINA OF AUSTRIA. THE PATTERN IS HABSBURG, # HAB95. IT FEATURES A BEAUTIFUL PINK (SOME FLOWERS LOOK SOMEWHAT LAVENDER) WITH A SCALLOPED RIM & GOLD TRIM ON WHITE. THIS SET IS IS QUITE OLD, NOT SURE OF THE EXACT AGE OF THE CHINA, CHINA REPLACEMENTS DOES NOT KNOW THE DATE OF MANUFACTURE ON THIS SET EITHER. THIS IS FINE, CHINA, IT IS TRANSLUSCENT WHEN HELD TO THE LIGHT. T ARE A TOTAL OF THREE DIFFERENT HABSBURG MARKS, SOME SAY "HABSBURG-MZ-AUSTRIA", OTHERS "HABSBURG-AUSTRIA" SOME HAVE "HABSBURG-AUSTRIA" WITH "HABSBURG CHINA" WRITTEN BELOW THAT IN CURSIVE. MOST ALL MARKINGS ARE GREEN, THE CURSIVE IS RED.THE SET WAS PART OF AN ESTATE, & THE OWNER INHERITED THE SET FROM HER MOTHER. T ARE 12 OF BOTH THE DINNER & SALAD PLATES, BUT T ARE LESS OF SOME OF THE OTHER PIECES. IT COMES WITH MANY SERVING PIECES, & THEY ARE STUNNING. THE SERVING PIECES WOULD ALL BE GORGEOUS ON DISPLAY. THIS SET IS FULL OF OLD WORLD CHARM & ELEGANCE, VERY TYPICAL OF OLD GERMAN CHINA. ALL 90 PIECES ARE FREE FROM CHIPS, CRACKS, OR DAMAGE, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF 1 BERRY BOWL, WITH A TINY NICK ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE RIM, & 2 BREAD PLATES WITH TINY CHIPS ON THE UNDERSIDE, ALL OF WHICH ARE NOT SEEN FROM ABOVE . T ARE ALSO A FEW PIECES I WILL LIST AT THE END OF THE LIST (THESE DAMAGED PIECES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN MY COUNT OF 90), THAT HAVE SOME CHIPS & HAIRLINE CRACKS.

THIS IS A LOT OF HEAVY CHINA, SO THAT IS WHY SHIPPING COSTS WHAT IT DOES. I SHIP AS SAFELY AS I POSSIBLY CAN, & 3 BOXES ARE REQUIRED FOR SO MUCH FRAGILE CHINA. INSURANCE IS IS REQUIRED & IS REFLECTED IN PRICE SHOWN. THIS IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL OLD SET, WITH OLD WORLD ELEGANCE & CHARM . I AM SURE YOU WILL LOVE THIS SET, & ENJOY IT FOR YEARS TO COME.
