These were supposedly by the First China Company in Scotland and that is the reason why there is no name on the them ??
Approximately made in 1830.
White with a tiny gold leaf pattern. Very light weight, and are in excellent condition.
Consist of...
6 cups & saucers - 1 Large teapot - 1 poit for tea drippings (supposedly - but looks like a sugar bowl to me ) - 1 creamer - 1 luncheon plate -

Does anyone have any idea on these ??

    I am originally from Scotland and I can tell you that Scottish pottery has been around for a lot longer than 1830, however the pieces were made of stoneware/earthenware from local clays. I'm not an expert, but yours pieces appear to be porcelain. There was a company in Glasgow called J & M.P Bell that made porcelain in the 1840's onwards, so maybe they were the first porcelain factory in Scotland, and your pieces were made there? I thought their pieces were all marked. Maybe if you google their name, you'll get more info.
    Royal Worcester & Royal Crown Derby of England both take credit for producing the first porcelain in the UK around the 1750's.

    My ancestors migrated from Roxburghshire, Scotland in 1833 to Ontario, Canada. They brought a patterned, white tea set with them. There are pieces of that set still in existence. These pieces have a transfer pattern of tree branches and leaves in green on the white background. There are no maker's marks or pattern name on the undersides. The shapes of the footed tea pot and its lid look a lot like the shapes in the picture above. Have you learned anything more about the set above?
