The set includes a teapot, a larger teapot (not shown because I haven't had the energy to polish it up yet!) covered sugar, creamer and open "waste" bowl (I believe a waste bowl was posted earlier). I am assuming that the "larger teapot" was intended to be a coffee pot, but it seems odd to me, since the forms should be different.
I am assuming this dates to 1880-1900 because of arts and crafty/Japonesque/Eastlake style. What actually attracted me to the set (and made me, after several repeat visits, buy it for $115 at a Northern Virginia thrift shop) was the "Russian-ness" of the design motifs -- even though this is clearly an American piece. Russian decorative arts are my thing!
