:: Condition and Specifications ::
This 12-piece set consists of the following:
4 - Dinner Plates - 9 inches [23cm] from corner to corner
4 - Coffee or Tea Cups - 3.75 inches [9.5 cm] in diameter by 2.25 inches [6.35cm] high
4 - Saucers - 6 inches [15.25cm] from corner to corner (1 extra available)
In great vintage condition: general crazing overall as expected for this age; 1 plate has a small scratch in its orange rings and a saucer has a tiny surface ding; otherwise, no chips, stains, or repairs.
Plates & saucers are backstamped “Tricorne by Salem U.S. Patent D. 94245” in platinum ink; 1 Cup is marked "U.S. Patent D. 96722 Streamline By Salem" and rest are unmarked.
:: Care & Handling ::
As with any china with metallic embellishment & of this age, these pieces should not be used in microwaves, and we strongly recommend hand washing soon after use. Where there is surface crazing, avoid staining by restricting contact with acidic or deeply colored liquids & foods (strong coffee, beets, etc). It is tempting to stack the cups inside one another (as pictured), but doing so regularly will wear the glaze off the handles.
PLEASE NOTE: Vintage and antique dishes were often decorated with glazes containing varying degrees of lead, a toxic chemical. If you have a concern, please research before purchasing. To minimize exposure to lead when using vintage dinnerware, please observe the following precautions: use infrequently; do not expose to high heat, including microwaves, ovens, and dishwashers; avoid contact with acidic foods & liquids, especially if cracked or crazed (slight crackling of the clear overglaze); do not use to store food or liquids; wash by hand soon after use and allow to air dry.
