From the 1940's is this wonderful set, or partial set, of porcelain, hand painted doll dishes from Japan. The dishes are in quite good condition. There are tea cups, a whole tea pot set with sugar and creamer with lids, and six larger plates and 4 saucers. Two of the plates have a few chip-pies and one cup has a tiny chip on the bottom but none on the lip.
What a treasure. It all came in this felted box that looks like a large cigar box. I put the white tissue in there because the green felt-ish material is coming off.
The larger plates are 3 1/2 inches wide. The cups are 2 1/4 inches wide and 1 1/2 inches tall. The teapot is 4 1/2" wide. All trimmed in a gold, which means it had to be fired twice. This is porcelain. Made in Japan.
