Antique Japanese 12 piece Tea Service (9198)
This is exquisitely hand painted on egg-shell-thin white porcelain. Each piece has a thick black border, with a temple, lake and mountains hand painted in gold gilt relief. There are orange maple trees hand painted on the white parts of porcelain.
This set comprises:
- Teapot with lid (180mm high x 120mm diameter)
- Double-handle Sugar Bowl with lid
- 4 x Floating Cups on tennis saucers (one has a hairline crack in its base - see photo)
This set is in good, used condition. No chips or cracks, just light wear to gilt around the lip of the tennis saucers only. All pieces have a high 'ting' when tapped, except for the one cup.
***This set is a similar style to listing (9199) - they came in together. It is a lot older, but almost matches the other set, and was used together. NOTE: these are two seperate listings. This listing is for the teapot, Sugar bowl and tennis sets only. ***The last photo is of BOTH listings (9198) and (9199) together (on seperate listings--NOT sold together) - just so you can see them together***
