Good Antique Condition, for Vast Age and Delicacy, with a small firing crack to rim of tureen, which does not go through porcelain, a shallow chip to foot rim, of Stand, which is probably from historical testing of porcelain, and also a small firing crack to stand rim with a further faint hairline crack. There are losses to the flowers which is commensurate with age. Antique Piece which is Almost 250 Years Old. Very Rare and Beautiful Piece.
