Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
At your convenience, please send photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment.
There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:
I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.

I am not very good at sending photos. I will try tomorrow. It is a tea set for 12. The cups are vertical with outward fluting; gold rim on top. There is a small flower with stem & leaf on the side of the cup. The saucer has the same outward fluting, with high sides & plain well with the same flower design. The tea plates & 2 serving plates have gold rims & outward fluting all around the out rim with a wide plain surface with the same flower in gold. The teapot, & sugar bowl cream pitcher & jam dish have vertical outward fluting with the gold flower on their sides. The Rd number is ***** in green rectangle on the inside of the lids & on their base. Rd 64638 seems to have started manufacture of this registered set some during 1887.

Hi , That is fine - send over images at your convenience. If I do not respond immediately, it is because I am not at my computer. Please rest assured that I will attend to your postings as soon as I am signed back in again. Sincerely, Nora
