This is a 72 piece set, of "old Ivory" pattern from Syracuse China Co., vintage of 1922 in New york state. My dad bought it as a wedding present to mom on their honeymoon trip, as I was told years later. The pictures show the karat gold border and trim, with a cornflower blue leaf pattern. Some pieces have not survived naturally, the serving pieces are real rare to find, but these are in excellent shape, and this set was never used for every day meals anyhow. We have not needed to use that set for many years now, so this is available to a new family. Yes it is real, it is not the imported junk stuff, you can tell the real quality china by the feel and the look of the table overall.

T are 7 big trencher? (bottom) plates left, so we used the 11 dinner? (next size) plates instead. The rest of the list looks like this: 3 --- Gradiated serving platters 2--- nested serving oval bowls 1--- Gravy boat 8--- cups, one with very small chip 10--- saucers 10--- real soup tureens 12--- salad or bread plates 7--- condiment plates. Plenty of china to set a great holiday table, and pieces were available some years back to complete it. It would look great on your holiday table.

This will be sold as a set only, as it is packed to ship now. I do like Pay Pal, but if you can wait till it clears I will take a check on a US bank, for US funds. If you have questions, please ask before the last day or so. For s hipping I will need to know the winners zip code, country etc. I will let the winning buyer know what it will cost to pack and ship the 60 pound package to wver it goes. I presume to use UPS or Fedex, and it must be insured for the winning value, which is quite reasonable in any case. If it is shipped overseas, we may have to ask the shipper what they think is prudent packing to move it by air.

Have a great holiday season, I wonder w the family china will end up now??

Some years ago I looked for matching pieces, and they did exist, but each plate was about $40.00, serving pieces not available at all. It is rare to find this many pieces in such good condition that you can set a full table without having to hunt for any serving pieces, and have dishes to spare. This is a vintage table setting anybody would be proud to own.
