Ceramic serving set is decorated with pink, blue, and orange hand painted flowers; edges are trimmed with a tiger stripe pattern of brown lines over pastel yellow. Sounds a bit wild, but it works -- Japanese ceramics designers made the most unusual elements fit together well!

Set includes a salt shaker, a pepper shaker, a creamer, 3 ashtrays with matching caddy, and a condiment tray with two lidded containers and 1 serving spoon. I originally had 2 spoons but one was dropped and broken.

Because there are so many pieces here, and lots of details, I am going to descibe each piece and its condition separately below.

Salt and Pepper Shakers: Stand 2 1/2 inches tall and measure 1 3/4 inches across. Both need new corks, salt cork is missing, pepper has its cork but it is very brittle. Both shakers are in very good condition, no cracks, no chips, some visible crazing, some discoloration under the glaze from use on the Pepper.

Creamer: Measures 5 inches long, including the spout and the handle; stands 1 3/4 inches tall. Holds just over 3 ounces of liquid. Excellent condition, no cracks, no chips, no stains inside, just a small bit of crazing visible.

Ashtrays and Caddy: Ashtrays measure 4 inches across from edge to edge of the ciggie rests. Each has a different flower decoration: 1 blue, 1 pink, and 1 reddish orange. Caddy measures 4 1/2 inches across and stands 1 and 1/2 inches tall. Has its original wire wrapped bamboo handle attached. Caddy is in excellent condition, no chips, no cracks. One ashtray has a small chip on the underside of a ciggie rest, another has a tiny chip in the bottom raised ring, no other damage to the ashtrays. One ashtray still has its thin paper label JAPAN printed in blue on white.

Condiment Server: The bottom tray measures 5 1/2 inches long and 3 inches wide. Top of the drop in handle stands 5 1/2 inches above the table. Condiment jars stand 3 inches tall with their lids in place; measure 2 3/4 inches long and 1 3/4 inches across. Jars have a notch for the spoon to fit inside with the lid on. Jar rims and part of the underside of the lids are not glazed; these show some darkened areas from age and use. Tray has one very small chip at the opening for the drop in handle. Some visible crazing; some stains under the glaze, not detracting. One jar has its JAPAN label still attached. Remaining spoon measures 3 inches long and is undamaged.

This is one of the items where I wish Etsy gave us the option for more than 5 photos, so I wouldn't have to write a book in the description. Anyway...I think I got all the details. Convo if you would like to see something not shown in the photos, and I will be happy to take some more pics and change what is shown in the listing for you.
