This nice three piece serving set from a child's tea set includes the 4" tall tea pot and lid, 2 1/2" sugar bowl and lid and 1 3/4" creamer. Decorated with a transfer in the ever-popular Blue Willow pattern and made in Japan.
These pieces are earlier and perhaps even date to the late 1800's. There are no markings and on 'real' china this indicates that it was made prior to the McKinley Tariff Act of 1891*. The pattern is a lighter blue and not as concentrated as on the later pieces from the 1950's. See the last picture for a comparison.
No damage other than two small firing dots on the creamer. The opening on the sugar bowl is slightly misshapen preventing the lid from sitting just right and it has a tendency to fall into the vessel which would be annoying in use but is perfectly fine for display.
*Among other things this act required that all good imported in the U.S. be marked with country of origin.
