Hi Concetta,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your tea set.

Thanks for the excellent description, I'm fairly sure I know the one you are describing

Does the figure in the bottom look like this (1) ?

or like this (2) ?

And does the set have dragons on it, like this one (3) ?

or is it more like this pattern (4) ?

If like none of the above, could you very kindly attach a photo.

Also, can you confirm I have the inventory correct:

8 cups & saucers

8 bread & butter plates

serving plate

creamer & sugar

teapot.

Many thanks and wait to hear,
Robert.

PS. Once you have the photos in your computer, it's a simple matter to attach them. Just click on the paperclip icon, located above the text box where you are typing to me. If there's no paperclip, click on the "Add files" tab.

If you get stuck go here for help.
