A bone china tea set with no name, but very pretty

A full tea set, cups, pot, creamer, sugar bowl but no country of origin. Any help with identity would be appreciated. The set, the bottom, marks in lids.

This was a thrift store find on my mother's part so there is no provenance. Education will be appreciated.

My first place to look would be Replacements.

Second Stewriffic's suggestion. My first instinct would be to say Rosenthal, but that should have some some of factory marking. Although with the crossed seven, German/Austrian isn't too bad a guess.

Absolutely Replacements, they got back to my mom about some obscure 1930s downmarket department store glasses she inherited (mismatched from her mother's china cabinet, in a mixed box of random stuff), on Christmas Day, within six hours, based on some really bad early phone-camera pictures. If they don't know, nobody knows.
