Wonderful vintage tea service for six. Teapot w/lid, creamer, sugar w/lid, six cups & six matching saucers. All are hand painted with a Japanese scene of Mt Fuji, pagoda house, ocean and landscape. Teapot is 7 1/4" tall. cups are 2 1/8" tall, to give you an idea of the size. I can't read Japanese but the stamp is Japanese characters. Lots of gold accent decoration, and moriage (relief) on the cherry trees. All pieces are in perfect condition. This is a very lovely set of china...
Chintz teapot with lustre ware accents. This is a most unusual piece. I believe it is from a childs set originally. It only measures 6 1/2" tall to the top of the lids handle. The body of the teapot is a soft green with white chintz flowers. The spout, handle and rim decorations are blue lustre. The teapot has a red "Made in Japan" stamp on the bottom. It is in Beautiful condition, with no scratches cracks,chips, staining or fading. What a beautiful little pot for your collection.
