What a gorgeous set! You can tell from the European interpretation of oriental figures and themes, together with the triple iron red concentric lines that this is a set dating between 1720 and 1730. Here is my early Meissen saucer decorated with a landscape and with the concentric triple lines, c. 1723 (no swords).

If my memory is correct , there s also a-travelling tea set in the Pozzi-Pezzoli Museum in Milan.
