This thirteen (13) piece set includes the following: (1) tall teapot and lid, creamer, sugar bowl and lid, (4) demi-cups, and (4) saucers. Heavy gold-gilding trim on handles and finials as well.
Measurements are as follows... teapot with lid (8" x 7") ... creamer (4" x 4") ... sugar bowl w/lid (5" x 4 3/4")... demi-cups (3" x 2 1/4) and saucers (4 3/4"). With "Kutani (& trademark) Hand-Painted Japan" backstamps.
