21 Piece Vintage Japanese Dragonware Tea Set

You are bidding on a 21/24 Piece Vintage Japanese Dragonware Tea Set with intricate, flowing, hand-painted moriage design in high relief.

This set includes:
Tea Pot with lid,
Creamer with lid,
Sugar Bowl with lid,
6 Tea Cups
6 Saucers, and
6 Cake Plates.
The level of intricate design and detail on this set is incredible. The colors include varying shades gray, brown, green, white, blue, peach, and pink. The lids of the tea pot, creamer, and sugar bowl are gilded with gold. The tea pot and creamer have dragon heads with the dragon's open mouth as pouring spouts.

One of the tea cups does have a slight hairline crack and chip above it at the rim. The balance of this set is in excellent condition with no sign of staining or use.

The bottom of each piece says "Handpainted, Made in Japan" in circular writing and has two side by side "T"s each in a diamond shaped outline in the center. I do not know the exact year of origin of this set but do know it was purchased in the early 1940s. This is really a beautiful set for use or display!

I have included a $5.00 handling charge. Since this is such a delicate set, each piece will be individually bubble-wrapped and set will be double boxed for shipping to ensure that it reaches you safely.
