Several pieces of this white porcelain dinner service with overglaze of polychrome decoration have survived with a tradition that they were acquired at the "Point Breeze" sale. They are of the correct period and of a handsome and serviceable type that might have been regularly used in such a house. (Matching bowl is 1979.15.01.)
