Geoffrey Godden.

The set consists of the following: teapot slightly over 7 inches high and approx 9 3/4 inches front to back.

Milk jug / creamer approx 5 inches high.

Boat shaped sugar bowl 4 3/4 inches to top of handles and almost 7 1/4 inches accross.

Under tray of sugar bowl- a little over 7 inches long.

Slop bowl or basin / bowl almost 3 inches high and 6 7/8 inch in diameter.

12 tea cups 2 1/2 inches high.

5 coffee cups 2 1/2 inches high.

6 saucers 5 3/8 inches in diameter and 1 1/8 inches high.

The milk jug/creamer has been damaged and poorly restored (the gilding on the handle is horrible, as is that on the rim).

One coffee cup has a small chip on the inside and one saucer looks to have had the middle restored by the same person who did the creamer.

(not nice).

Besides that, there is the inevitable minor gilt wear to some pieces, with a little more wear to the undertray of the sugar basin while other pieces, like the teapot and slop bowl in great shape, including the gilding.

A Flight Barr teapot of identical form is also shown in British Teapots and Tea Drinking by Robin Emerson figure 372 page 230, p116.
