70 Pieces. Gold/Gilded Japanese Lacquerware, with Black secodary color. All Hand Painted with a vatiety of Japanese Images from Floral and Nature. A nice variety of images through out the set.This is a Used Table Serving. Includes both Table wares as well as TEA SERVICE and many additional smaller items to make a very complete set. I had obtained this set over a dozen years ago. I have had part of it on display in a dinning room display case, and the rest of it I had stored away. I bought it just as is it is now. I do not rally know its exact age. T are no makers marks or signatures on the pieces that I can find. A number of the pieces show some use. My guess is that this set was used by a family/children for "tea party(s)" or for occassional use. I personally do not know if the paint and/or lacquer is in any way harmful for actual use (lead?). I got this because it was a beautiful and very complete set. I used it only for decorative/display. The only reason Im selling this is because we are doing a living room/dining room/kitchen remodel this winter and spring. So Im selling a bunch of or items toward this end. The set includes: One 12" Large Serving Plate One 9 1/2" Serving Bowl Three 5 3/4" Bowls One Three Piece Half Circle (Half Moon) Serving Tray/Box with Removable 3 section insert/tray and lid. TWO Large Serving Spoons Twelve/12 Small Tea Cup Spoons Eight/8 6 3/4" Serving Plates Two Piece Tea Pot (tea pot and lid) Two Piece Sugar Server (with lid) One Creamer Twelve/12) 4 1/4" Tea Cup Saucers Twelve/12 Tea Cups Eleven/11 Finger/Small Bowls ALL PIECES are ORIGINAL and all from the same/original set. This is not a miss matched set put together from odds and ends. ALL PIECES are Original to the set and ALL MATCHING PIECES Other than some general wear from use, the only real damage I can find on the set is the Lid to the Half Circle 3 Section Serving Tray has 2 small chips on the sides, and the seams were the lid was put together is seperating. T is also a few blemishes on its lid. T is a small blemish on the side of the large Serving Bowl (runs from the original finish?). The rest of the set is in fairly good condition. PLEASE NOTE; I do not know how old this set is. My guess is that its a fairly modern set. Also note; The Hand painted images seem to me to be either/or a combination of stensiling and brush work.
