It is a set of English Royal Doulton Fine Bone China "Martinique" design from 1990 (over 30 years ago)! The official code (model number) of this set is "h 5188". Com:'Doulton fine china was also favored by the English royal family. During the late 1800s, Queen Victoria showed her appreciation by knighting Henry Doulton. King Edward the VII followed with a Royal Warrant in 1901, allowing the company to become known as Royal Doulton.' This set of Doulton China is for 12 (Twelve) Place Settings! The only missing pieces are one missing tea cup and one missing tea cup saucer. Listed below are all the included China items in this set: 12 Rimmed Soup bowls 8" (inch) 12 Fruit/Dessert (Sauce) bowls 5" 11 Footed Tea cups (slight wear, one is slightly chipped on bottom) 11 Tea cup saucers 2 Oval Vegetable bowls 10" 1 Sugar bowl with lid 1 Coffee pot with lid 1 Gravy boat with Underplate 1 Creamer 12 Bread & Butter plates for "dipping" (6.5", slight indent with outer rim) 12 Dinner plates (slight wear, fork scratches) 12 Accent Salad (medium) plates with circular dolphin design in middle UPDATE!
I have found the three following items in this set. 1 Oval Vegetable Bowl 10. 1 Oval Serving Platter 13. 1 Handled Cake Plate 10 & 3/4.This set of "Martinique" Doulton Fine Bone China was Made in England and belonged to a fellow parishioner Mr. He and his family were moving to the East Coast. They were on a time crunch to downsize their possessions. The family graciously passed this set of Doulton China on to me.
It seems like they only used the China a few times, because the condition is excellent (other than the minor imperfections listed above). I have not used any of the items myself and have been keeping them safely stored since obtaining them. Thank you very much for your time. I appreciate you reading this listing! This design is very strong with a dark red patterned band.
Gold details and a sort of turquoise coloring are intertwined within this red pattern, giving the pieces a very bold look. Use these while entertaining guests or as part of a fine display in your china collection.
