It come from Italy, it was my grandmother's, probably wedding present in 1920 or there about. There are in total 66 pieces.
It could be a set for 8 - 10, and you'll have plenty to replace if some of them breaks. 90% of the plates haven't been used so they are in pristine conditions. A few of the plates have lost some of the gold but none of them is chipped. The Gravy bowl has an old stain (see photo). It is dishwasher safe but I suspect it will lose some of the paint if washed too often as it is for anything hand paint.
The Richard Ginori porcelain factory, is the oldest manufacturer in continuous production and predates the English bone china factories. Founded in 1735, Richard Ginori is one of the few modern enterprises where traditional hand-making skills are preserved.
Porcelain is usually greyish in tone but Richard Ginori tableware is the whitest available and is even whiter than Limoges. A set similar to this will cost today over £2500. See https://www.richardginori1735.com/uk/en-primavera for an example of the market price.
