I just received an older (evidently original) version of this set so I put my sets side by side for a comparison. There are differences in them, although both state they are "Pleasant Company"
First is the Queen cake. The older set has actual 'nutmeg' flakes on it and looks very real. The tea caddy is a bit smaller and obviously darker than the newer one. The 'latch' on the dark (older) caddy is larger and the handle is flatter. The tea cup has a smaller base circumference and the plate is a bit rounder, more bowl shaped. The fruit designs are darker on the older set.
