Japanese auction watch

This item was up for auction in March of 08 in Japan. It is a set of 5 cups from a kiln called the Akashi kiln listed at 3 inches by 3 inches by 2 inches. They don’t come with a box. The minimum price was 5,000 yen. They didn’t sell. Either someone wasn’t looking for that particular item or they were priced too high at the beginning.
