This extravagant design was originally made in China, probably for export to the Portuguese and Brazilian markets. Of all the 18th century dinner patterns, this was the most highly prized. A small phoenix bird perches on the leaves of the flowering Nicotiana (Tobacco) plant. Twenty-seven colors and 22k gold make up this pattern showing that good design is timeless. Includes dinner, dessert and bread plates as well as a teacup and saucer. Microwave and dishwasher safe. Special order item - may require an additional two weeks for delivery.
