Including 8 cups, all by W. Floral repousse on base, decoration on shaft, handle. Height 8-3/4", maximum horizontal dimension 7-3/4". Weight 35.9 troy ounces. No monogram. Overall condition is excellent except that we assume it at one time had egg spoons. Mark condition is excellent. We obtained this set from the estate of Crosby Forbes, author of the pioneering book on Chinese Export silver and descendant of the Forbes family who were prominent in the China trade. This is the nicest Chinese egg set we have ever owned (the others had 6 cups).
