Heirloom Estate Antique Gilt & White Porcelain Dinner Service for 8, hand painted with 24 kt gold rims and monograms. Painted by the Lycett Decorating Studio of Atlanta, GA. One of the most famous porcelain decorators, porcelain marked with Lycett's name are present in many historic homes and museum collections. Lycett was hired to paint pieces for President Lincoln's china in the White House - the firm was very exclusive. 

This set is a service for 8. It includes dinner, luncheon and dessert plates, tea cups, a serving bowl, serving platter, sauceboat, salt and pepper set, and a sugar and creamer.  The Lycett Studio painted this set for a society client, with the monogram JHL - the blanks used in the set range from French Limoges to high end German porcelain makers, with the one exception being the salt & pepper set which is marked Noritaki. Either the client added to the set over the years {birthdays & holidays} or the Lycett Studio used a variety of fine quality blanks on hand during the late 1800's, early 1900's. 

Of note,2 tea cups are from a different porcelain maker with different saucers than the other 6, 2 dessert plates have a small hairline, 1 was dropped by the new maid, please see close-ups. There is some wear to the gilding, but this is a glorious set that displays beautifully. A once-in-a-lifetime find!
