Stunning THOMAS / ROSENTHAL PorcelainService for 8 / Plus 4 additional Cups (44pcs) Exceptional quality and condition. This set of 50's/60's china dinnerware - an estate find - has seen very little use. These were probably the "good dishes" - used on holidays or special occasions. I have examined the set and find only one small chip on a dinner plate (pictured # 9, bottom plate), otherwise nearly pristine. Service for 8 - each place setting includes : Dinner Plate 9.75" Salad Plate 7.5" Bread Plate 6" Cup & Saucer 8oz / 6" PLUS 4 extra Cups (no saucers)
The pattern is iconic - sophisticated andmodern. The colors are splendid - gray and pink on a field of bone white. Set a beautiful HOLIDAY table with these very retro dishes. The THOMAS factory is still in production today, as a subsidiary of ROSENTHAL Glass & Porcelain. The 'shield and urn' mark began use in 1953 - this set was made sometime after that, exact date unknown. Dishes will be double boxed and expertly packed - insurance required.
