DESCRIPTION: Imported from Japan by Morimura Brothers, this handpainted sugar and creamer set is simply charming. On white porcelain, the depicted scenery is of a thatched-roof cottage set amidst cherry blossom trees in a peaceful valley. The pastel colors are serene and enhanced with moriage on the handles and sugar lid; each slip is finely painted with exceptional detailing. A soft glazed sheen covers each piece and augments the artistry.
WHY I LIKE IT: This set will mix very well on a moderne tablesetting with a nod to the elegance and grace of Japanese culture. Enhance your dining table with a ceramic vase filled with cherry blossoms and be sure to offer your favorite blend of teas.
