This is a beautiful vintage Japanese tea set from the 1960's/70's. It has a bamboo design on a beige/brown "swirl" pattern background. It appears that the bamboo design was carved onto the cups and the teapot while the clay was still wet before glazing and painting, and it gives the pieces a textured feel. Although the bamboo theme of the design is the same, each piece has a slightly different pattern and coloring. The same is true with the "swirl" pattern inside the cups, they are all different. The style of the cup is called Chawan which means tea bowl. The tea pot has a metal handle that is wrapped in a vinyl cord. Very nice tea set.

This tea set is in great vintage condition, the design is shiny and free of scratches and marks, it does not appear that it was used much or at all. There are a couple of small areas where the glaze did not attach or formed a small bubble. The set is hand made and painted and there are a few flaws that likely occurred during the glazing process. There is a little discoloration on areas that do not have glaze either by design or because it is worn off. The metal handle has a missing locking metal ring on one side (see last picture). Even with the small flaws this tea set is wonderful.

The teapot measures 5" tall without the lid and 7" across to the end of the spout. The cups are 2" tall and 3" in diameter.

Mahalo for visiting The Volcano Coast Store.
