this is a pill box that is approx. 2in wide, 2in deep with a picture of a victorian woman. the picture is black and white sort of smokey color. The base is some kind of metal, almost looks like copper.
the tea set has plates tea cup and saucers creamer and tea pot the color is light blue with black handle inside is light yellow it was a set for 8 but the pieces are incomplete on the bottom are manrkings of victoria czecho-slovakia and a crown is in the center either a number 66 or 99 is visable also
Mahogany finish. Four curved legs with brass caps on ends. Drop leaf on two sides. No extra leaf for middle. 4 chairs in same color with small harps in center. I don't think the chairs are part of this collection because they were made by a different company and are not stamped Drexel. I really don't know anything about this set except it's old and nicely made. Any help with history, value, etc. would be appreciated. Thank you.
