This partial dinner set has to be one of the rarest finds on etsy right now. On offer is simlay stoke on trent imari antique service, dating from the 1890s. The service includes a large serving platter, five large dinner plates, three slightly smaller dinner plates, a soup tureen with lid and matching salver and a small server (no lid). We are not certain where the rest of the service is at this time. Each piece is in good condition, without major faults of any kind, however time has not been overly kind to the large platter – it is crazed and discolouration has seeped into this in parts. All the pieces have some evidence of crazing, and most have tiny anomalies such as the colouring being worn at the edges or similar. We have not photographed every piece, but rest assured we have no concerns about the quality or the condition of any part of this service. Given the size and number of pieces, and the box that would be required to package and send them safely, we feel there is no option but to have them couriered to you – which is very expensive and is reflected within the cost of the service. If this is what you decide, we will reduce the price of the service to reflect the fact that a courier is not being engaged. Thank you for your interest.
