For your consideration is this 98pc Meissen Floral china set by Mitterteich Bavaria, Germany. This beautiful 12 place setting was purchased in 1969-1970 from the May Company in Torrance, California.

It was passed from mother to daughter in 1977. From 1970 to 1977 the china was used atleast 3 or 4 times a year. T were a couple of pieces broken (1 cup and the gravy boat) in our move from California to Illinois in 1978 (military movers), but both pieces were replaced (as a matter of fact, the old gravy boat didn't have a handle-the newer one does).

Since 1977 the set has only been used twice, and up until a year ago, was displayed in a cabinet. The set has since been cleaned, carefully wrapped and placed in quilted containers, boxed and placed in storage. As we are retiring in the next year, and our new home will be somewhat smaller, we must begin to sort through some of our long gatd treasures and make heartbreaking choices of what to keep and what not to keep. This china is on the 'what not to keep' list.

This china is in good to excellent condition. The 24kt gold trim that adorns each piece is perfectly intact. T are no cracks or fading. This set is truley a treasure, and would be the perfect wedding or anniversary gift. The set consists of:

Coffee/Tea Pot w/lid Sugar bowl w/lid and Cream Pitcher
