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 on the front of each piece.
The main body colour is a rich Burgundy shade with a pattern delineated in white.
The handles on each piece are a burnished gold colour. The teapot lid and sugar bowl lid each have 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 the spout to the end of the 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 has 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 its delicacy. The little set will be carefully packed and sent to you with Special Next Day Delivery - this will cost £10 and applied to your order at the checkout.
