Description: Canton Condiment Sets are much sought after and hard to find with all 9 pieces in perfect condition. Even harder to find is a set in the tradional lacquer box. That is why the price range is a wide one.
Pictured first is a full Canton pattern set nestled on a rattan mat. The second set is the Canton pattern but missing the rain cloud borders. It is in a black and gold lacquer box. Next is the square center sections from each of the sets, they both are about 3 3/4″ square. After them are the fronts and backs of pieces showing the different decoration and the unglazed bottoms that all the pieces have. In the last picture the lacquer box is shown.
Fairly regularly, individual pieces from sets are sold in the $75.-$100. range.
