My mother-in-law was a fantastic investigator of all things and could find out what things were in the age before the internet! Alas, even with the internet, I am having difficulty figuring out how to find out what the backstamp says on this teaset!

There are a teapot, creamer, sugar bowl, 6 cups and saucers and a tray. They all are marked on the bottom in Chinese (?), which I don't read. Then there is the pattern. How to find out what it is? And then, how old it is?

Thoughts? Direction? Thank you all in advance!
