Good afternoon Pearl. What lovely name!. I have a set of teapot, milk jug and sugar bowl marked on the bases as IE&CO hand painted Japan. They are very intricately printed with lots of gold. They have been well used as the gold is worn of the handles if it was originally there. I acquired them in Melbourne, Australia and have had them for 35 years but never used them. Thanks for any assiatance you can provide. Kind regards Jean

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Yes there is a small chip out of the teapot spout that is probably relevant. I can see my fingers through the base so the china is very fine. Thankyou jean
