This Vintage Dinner Set is absolutely beautiful and in pristine condition ! All that is missing is 1 cup. I don't think any of the pieces, except for a few of the cups, has ever been used.

It's made by Wedgwood, Edme is the style of the plates (Wedgwood makes this style in plain cream today), Cavalier is the pattern. The cups are the same pattern, but they say Meadow.

According to a couple of sites on Google, Cavalier/Meadow was discontinued in 1940, but the impressed year stamp on this set is 1944 (& 1949 on a couple of the saucers), so perhaps it was discontinued in the 1940s.

One of the lovely things about the set is that the blue flowers in the pattern are a little bit different on each sized plate, matching the size (see photos). Another is that when your plate is loaded with food you see these elegant rimmed edged white plates, and when you finish you see the delicate pattern in the middle. They'd be great for dinner parties or even for a wedding present, I think.

Here's how I've calculated the Reserve:
6 Large Dinner Plates @ $25 each
6 Entree Plates @ $20 each
6 Rimmed Soup Bowls @ $20 each
6 Side Plates @ $15 each
2 Lidded Tureens/ Vegetable Dishes @ $100 each
1 Large Platter @ $100
1 Medium Platter @ $60
1 Small Platter @ $30
5 Footed Cups and Saucers @ $20 each
+ 1 free saucer

I think you'd pay more per piece for modern stuff !

I bought it a while ago on impulse and love it, but sadly I need to part with it (my daughter needs $6000 worth of braces and this is a good start).

I'd love to sell it as a complete set. If my Reserve is not met, though, I'll break the set up. I'll put a Buy Now price in case you love it as much as I do and don't want to wait a week or risk missing out at the end.

I'm going to make it Pick-up only at this stage (lucky Wellingtonians) as I'd really hate to risk posting it or sending it by courier. Pick up is in Ngaio.

Thanks for reading all this :)
