This nice 1920's Japanese porcelain tea set has a high kaolin content-- the porcelain is paper-thin and nearly translucent. There are twelve pieces to the set including the pot, creamer and sugar, three cups and three saucers. The only detectable flaw is a very tight hairline in the teapot lid. Other than that it is a perfect set. The pieces depicts hand-painted cranes, mountain scenes, flying birds and enameled flowers, all very nicely executed. There is a Japanese signature on the back or bottom of most of the pieces. DIMENSIONS: Teapot measures 7" tall x 8" from handle to spout. Creamer measures 4" tall x 5" from handle to spout. Sugar measures 4" tall x 6" FROM HANDLE TO HANDLE. Cups measure 2" tall x 2" diameter. Saucers are 4.5" diameter x .5"
