So we went to a very famous porcelain store because the crystal shop I wanted to visit was closed (and this was open). I don't much care for porcelain, but I did like this tea service; in fact it was the only thing I really loved in the entire store. I'm sort of mathematically challenged so was certain I was understanding the price incorrectly, but no: It was $14,000. Apparently it was a limited edition of which they had only made 25. Needless to say, it didn't come home with me.
