Vintage Ceramic Japanese Tea Set
This crackle glaze, hand painted tea set from Japan comes in the original satin-lined box, which still has the original price sticker affixed. The creamy crackle glaze is decorated with hand drawn black calligraphy, gold accents and maroon trim. It is in perfect condition, never used, dating from the early to mid 20th century.
The set includes 7 pieces including 5 cups, teapot with handle and lid. Perfect for a collector or tea aficionado. The base has a studio or factory mark that includes "Japan". There is no damage but there are some iron spots beginning to show on the unglazed foot rim due to age. The cups are approximately 2.5 inches in depth with a 3 inch diameter. The teapot is approximately 4 inches with a 3 inch diameter opening.
