Under the teapot it says "Pekoe, England".
Each piece has the flags of Britain,
The horizontal white, blue and red bands of the Russian flag was used until the October 1917 Revolution, so I am assuming that this tea set was made before 1917.
But I wonder what event it commemorated?
Any ideas, anyone?
Blogger Xtreme English pointed out the error of my ways in confusing the German flag with the flag of Belgium. Germany has horizontal bands, Belgium has vertical bands. Of course, I knew that!
She also says this is WWI commemorative china showing the flags of England, Belgium, Russia, and France--the allies against Germany in WWI before America entered the war. A lot of this china was made in about 1914. Thanks M.E.!
