A Japanese made hand painted chocolate pot set in redware ceramic with a creamer and lidded sugar bowl included. It has a lovely raised moriage application in orange, blue and white along with an interesting wreath, swag and flower design. The background color is brown. It is called redware because of the iron oxide in the ceramic clay that has a reddish color before it is painted. The decorations are hand applied. The glazing inside and out is in fine condition.
The pot is full size at 7.25 inches high. It holds 2.5 cups of liquid when filled up to the neck line. The set is in very good condition with no chips or crackling. Each piece still has a Made in Japan sticker on the bottom.
