This tankard is 16" tall and about 8" wide and beautiful. The background is a very dark green. The roses are different shades of pink and they look handpainted. The bottom part is a really pretty shade of yellow. The bottom has a gold fleur de lis stamped and in gold says "Limoges China". There are four matching cups that come with it. They are 5" tall and match the pitcher. There is a lot of gold guilding on all the pieces. The inside of each piece is white. The handles on each are also white with gold guilding. I think some pink roses in this piece would be breathtaking if you'd like to use it as a tall planter vase. But empty is is still exquisite, large, and quiet an eye catcher in any room of any home or office. It would be a really great asset to any setting.
