Franciscan 9 piece china set in the Desert Rose Pattern. This pattern has been produced throughout the decades with small variations to the overall feel color and weight.
This 9 piece set is early Franciscan authenticated by the maker's mark and feel of the china. This set of 3 cups and 6 saucers have a distinct, raised detailed “touch" to them. As the years rolled by this detail was lost/replaced with a less labor intensive manufacturing process.
Not only are they early Franciscan they were hardly ever used and stored in a china hutch all these years! They look like brand new with no utensil marks, stain, residue, chips, or bites to the china.
This listing is for (9) pieces
(3) 2 ¼ inch cups
