This is a glorious tea set nestled in a silk lined gift box. The six cups and covered porcelain tea pot are finished in a gray glaze which allows the blue chrysanthemums to become the show. Each piece has a six character signature. (I hope I photographed it right side up.). The squatty tea pot is a dignified and interesting one, the handle is almost animal-like with the head peeking over the lid to help hold it on and the front and back legs forming the handle. The teapot holds only 2/3 cup water with the cups holding only 1/4 cup. Because there is no paperwork or sticker declaring it food safe, it is best to assume that it is not food safe. The box itself is a gift, with silver thread forming flowers and dragons on a dark blue background. Inside each piece has its own custom cutout compartment covered in golden silk. One of the cups has a flake on the rim; see the last photograph. This set will be boxed in bubble wrap and loose packing peanuts.
