I bought this set in 1999 in Colonial Williamsburg. It contains one teapot, two teacups, and two saucers. It's th' same pattern as Pugwash Merriman's teacup. th' teacups be both big and have Nay handles, since many teacups were modeled after teacups from China during that time period. (I learned that th' cups were never supposed to be filled to th' top, because ye help th' cup around th' top rim.) th' cups be blue wit' white decorations, and teapot be th' reverse colors (white wit' blue decoration). th' china be very durable. th' teapot looks small next to th' round cups and large saucers but holds a substantial amount o' liquid.
In th' box was also a pamplet wit' proper teatime behaviors at Miss Manderly's table and a recipe for Queen Cakes.
