Offering a rare vintage set of miniature, opalescent milk glass dollhouse dishes from Japan.
There are 15 pieces in this grouping: 6 cups, 6 saucers, a creamer, a small compote and a larger one.
The milk glass here is not thick and solid, but translucent, particularly around the edges. When you hold a piece up to the light, you can see opal like colors around the rims. Each piece has JAPAN embossed into the glass bottom.
The saucers are 1 3/8" in diameter, the cups are about 1" in diameter, the small compote is 1 1/8" in diameter and the larger compote is 1 5/8" in diameter.
The edges of these pieces, both top and bottom are rough from the manufacturing mold.
There is only one small chip, on the edge of a single saucer.
