Bassett Limoges Fine Paste Porcelain

FOR SOMEONE WHO LOVES OLD BEAUTIFUL DISHES in unusually good condition:  Dinner set including teacups and saucers, salad plates, and dinner plates (service for 8 plus some spare items) of Bassett Limoges fine hard-paste porcelain - pattern BSS5789 - pink, yellow & gray flowers, embossed rim. These are NOT microwave- or dishwasher-safe—they are for the lover of fine dishware willing to take good care of it. They were passed down through 3 generations of our family and appear to have been used little or not at all.   According to my notes, 5 plates have a crack or mild imperfections somewhere on them but as mentioned, do not appear to have been used at all, so no scratches.  We donate a lot of items to thrift organizations, but don’t want to do that with these because they will probably be separated and get broken.

 

 

George Bassett was a NY company with factories in Limoges and Austria, manufactured from the late 1800s until WWI so these are true antiques - even if manufactured until WWI, they are 100 years old.  All except the 5-1/2" saucers have the green (Austria) decoration mark.  Not sure the serving trays are Basset 5789 but are very similar; the attached photo is the closest I could get.
Includes:
5-1/2" saucers (9)
3-1/2" cups (9)
8" salad plates (9)
9-3/4" dinner plates (8)
13x9" tray (1)
3-1/4" tray (1).  
I think there are also 4 demitasse saucers as well (but not demitasse cups).   If you are interested, we will re-survey and make exact notes per item and of course make them available for you to look at as well.  We are asking $300 for the entire set; thanks for looking!
