___________________

Geisha Lithophane Portraits and Hand Painted Geisha Patterns decorate this 18 pieces Antique Japanese Tea Set. With a lovely warm peach blush background. Pinched blossom flowers handles to the lids and gilt detail to the pattern.

A Tea Set for Four made in fine Eggshell Porcelain. Each piece signed. ( please contact us if you would like to see a photograph of the mark).

The Geisha figures are on each piece. On the fronts of the teapot, sugar, jug, bowl and cups with a touch of the pattern on their reverse, there is also a detail touch of the blush pattern to the inside of the bowl.

On the whole this set is in excellent condition. There is just a slight bit of patches of wear to the blush finish in places on the saucers and plates, this though could have been done during manufacture as this set does not look as though it has been used.

Made for tea but I think sipping Champagne from these delicate transluscent cups would also be perfect too!

This set consists of:
1 x Large Teapot .. 2 1/4 pint capacity .. 210mm tall ( 8 1/4")
1 x Lidded Sugar Pot .. 152mm tall ( 6")
1 x Jug ... 189mm tall (3 1/2")
1 x Open Bowl.. 140mm diameter at the top rim x 70mm tall ( 5 1/2 x 2 3/4")
4 x Tea Cups ... 100mm diameter at the top rim x 51mm tall ( 4 x 2" )
4 x Tea Saucers ... 140mm diameter ( 5 1/2")
4 x Tea Plates .. 156mm diameter ( 6 1/8")
