16-PC DRAGON DECO TEA SET HAND-PAINTED BETSON JAPAN NR!
This NetTrader lot is for a gorgeous vintage 16-piece BETSON fine china dragon pattern tea set. Made in Japan. Auction includes original coverlids for the teapot and sugar bowl. Given the colors used and artistic style applied to these fine pieces, they certainly have an art deco appearance. Featuring magnificent design work of raised-relief dragons and other Asian-inspired art themes. Each piece is hand painted and has an airbrush effect, with a primarily matte finish to them. T are small yellow bands around all the saucers and cups, and the saucers have nice scalloped edges, as do the cups at base. The colors are wide ranging with dark charcoal, mauve, sky blue, purple, creamy white and what looks to be 24k gold plated on the handles and at the rims. All of the pieces are in excellent used condition with no chips, cracks or significant flaws.
