Porcelain tea set in the form of a 'mad doctor'.  (A) Teapot resembles a male figure from the waist up, wearing a white coat, white collared shirt, and black tie.  The figure's arms are raised, pointing upward with his left hand and holding a tube in his right.  The figure's head (B) is bald, shows stubble, wears glasses, and smiles in a toothy grin. Two off-white ceramic cups are inscribed with measurement lines and labeled as (C) TDC and (D) CID.  (E) The teapot and cups rest on a large off-white rectangular platter with shallow raised lip.
