I bought this set in 1999 in Colonial Williamsburg. It contains one teapot, two teacups, and two saucers. It's the same pattern as Felicity's teacup. The teacups are both big and have no handles, since many teacups were modeled after teacups from China during that time period. (I learned that the cups were never supposed to be filled to the top, because you help the cup around the top rim.) The cups are blue with white decorations, and teapot is the reverse colors (white with blue decoration). The china is very durable. The teapot looks small next to the round cups and large saucers but holds a substantial amount of liquid.
In the box was also a pamplet with proper teatime behaviors at Miss Manderly's table and a recipe for Queen Cakes.
