Here is a nice Made in Japan mark porcelain demitasse Tea Set. It includes the tea pot and lid, creamer, sugar (lid missing), and five cup and saucer sets. The body of each piece is brilliant white with a cream colored band and handpainted gilt decoration. Each piece is back-stamped with a red "Made in Japan" mark.
The tea pot stands 8 1/2" tall to the top of the lit handle, 8" across the handle to the tip of the spout, 3 1/2" across the body, and just over 2 3/4" across the base. The sugar is 5 1/2" across the handles, 3 1/2" across the body and just over 3" tall. the creamer is 4" across the handle to the tip of the spout, 3" across the body, and 2 1/8" across the base. The saucers are 3 3/4" in diameter. The cups are just over 2" tall, 2 5/8" across the handle and across the rim, and a little under 1 1/2" across the base.
This set is in excellent condition (missing sugar lid aside), and I can detect no chips, cracks, flakes or other damage.
A lovely tea set from the 1930's for entertaining your friends.
Enjoy each day!
