    The set is not from Austria as described. It is a Russian set worth about 30 Euros (I paid almost 300 Euros).
    The Russian label is on the inside of the box, this label was not shown in the photos.

  • Received as described. Seller is extremely lucky item was not damaged. While well wrapped in bubble the ceramic item was placed in a thin and flimsy cardboard box. Fortunately this nice item survived.
