A very fine Porcelain Tea Set with a design featuring a Phoenix, richly decorated in blue, white and gold colours. Not being an expert on asiatic porcelain and not being able to read the maker's marks, I am unsure as to whether this is Chinese or Japanese from the Art Nouveau period. Collectors will know!
It comprises a teapot, milk jug, sugar bowl and 5 cups/saucers. The maesurements are between 5.5 and 17 cm, i.e. relatively small, while the porcelain is wafer thin, practically translucent.
Condition is excellent with no discernable damage or restoration. The provenance is a Collection in Switzerland.
