This is a beautiful and rare Harlequin design by Cmielow, in Poland.
It dates to the late 1950s or early 1960s.
The set consists of three matching pieces with a stunning abstract striped pattern to the front of each piece.
The main body colour is a rich Burgundy shade with the pattern delineated in white.
The handles on each piece are a burnished gold colour. The teapot lid and sugar bowl lid each has a matching knop with is also burnished gold. The teapot has a gold spout.
All pieces have a fine gold border around the rim sections.
The teapot measures from spout to end of handle: 9 inches. It is about 6 inches in height. Of course, in excellent, damage free condition.
The sugar bowl measures handle to handle 6 1/4 inches and it has a height of 3 1/2 inches. In excellent condition.
The milk jug measures from spout to handle 5 1/4 inches, and has a height of 3 1/2 inches; again in excellent condition.
As you can see from my photographs - not only does it have a fabulous pattern - but also a most elegant, streamlined shape.
Examples with this shape and pattern are now very hard to source.
This is reflected in my asking price.
Sadly, this would be for UK posting only, due to it's delicacy.
I am also listing two cups and saucers in the same pattern - but in different colours. I think that it would have originally had six cups and saucers in tutti-frutti colours - but now only two of them survive. These can be posted with this set at no extra cost if you also wish these to go with this set.
