|| for item safn-4894
This is a STUNNING little 17 Piece grey/black dragonware Tea Set, with gold trim, blue eyed dragons and areas of light blue. It has BP Japan stickers on most all pieces over a red Made in Japan stamp. On saucer has a different red Japan stamp on it. It is a Moriage (relief) Dragonware Set with the geisha Lithopane in each cup. It includes: Teapot with Cover, Sugar Bowl with Cover, Creamer, 6 Teacups and 6 Saucers. The Saucers measure approximately 4 3/4" in diameter, and the teapot with the lid on is 7 1/2" tall to the top of the finial. This set does show vintage age and wear on the gold accented lid finials and somewhat on the saucers edges in places) but it does NOT have any chips, cracks or otherwise broken pieces, and most of the other gold decoration is all nice. Truly a beautiful set for anyone.
