The tea set pieces are labeled as made in Occupied Japan and have the dragon pattern, rimed in grey and gold. I will describe the pieces as accurately as possible, see pictures for more detail.

The cream pitcher shows slight wear on the handle and t is one place under the pour spout w the grey has worn off. It does not appear to be chipped, just worn. The creamer stands approximately 3 inches high and is 5 inches across at the widest place. The creamer is clean inside and out.

The sugar bowl shows little wear, just a bit on the gold handles. The sugar bowl with lid stands approximately 4 ½ inches tall and is 6 inches across at the handles and 2 ½ inches across at the base.

The teapot shows wear on the handle, the gold is warn away in a two places, as if from use. Other than that t is no obvious wear on the tea pot or its lid. The pot and lid are both clean inside and out. The teapot stands approximately 8 ½ inches tall with the lid in place and is approximately 8 inches wide at the spout and handle and 3 inches at the base.

The set contains 6 saucers. Each saucer measures approximately 4 ¾ inches across. One saucer has lost a bit of the detailing on a sting coming from the bottom of the dragonâe(tm)s mouth. Another saucer has lost a bit of the detailing around the rim, the rest seem to be in good condition.
