15-piece Antique Japanese Porcelain Hand-Painted Lusterware Tea / Coffee Set
(FULL SIZE – not a play set.)

This stunning 15-piece antique Japanese Tea / Coffee Set looks practically unused: oyster iridescence inside with a gold luster outside. Green luster “bushes” are accented on the outside along with a hand-painted Japanese trees, bluebirds, floral embellishments in yellow, red, green, burgundy, cerulean blue & white decoration, which, with the overall excellent condition, makes this set one of a kind. Each teacup saucer has a mural painted on it as well! All pieces have a painting on one side only. There is no painting on the backside of the cups or serving pieces.

These serving pieces truly look like fine jewelry!

The handles on the service pieces, while similarly glazed, are more dolphin-like in shape, and the lid finials are a flattened open ring. The lids on both service pieces are notched to prevent spills and perforated to allow steam release.

I purchased this set over 30 years ago from an antique shop for $170 and they have been only in display and the in storage for the past 10 years (didn’t want them out when the children came along!)

There were always only 5 cups and saucers, that is how I purchased the set. Nothing has ever been used or broken.

Set Inlcudes:

1 Teapot and 1 lid
1 Sugar Bowl and 1 lid
1 Creamer (no lid)
5 Tea / Coffee Cups and 5 Saucers

There are no cracks or damage that I could find. There are some spots on the creamer where it appears to be worn but it actually is a spot where the glaze was missed. The edges also have some of this – it is not actually damage but normal imperfections you have with hand-painted/glazed pieces.

All together, this set is an exceptional example of antique Japanese porcelain artwork. All pieces marked with a symbol and “Hand Painted – Made in Japan”.
