You're bidding on what appears to be a Japanese tea set - It looks to me like it has some age to it, but I'm not even going to pretend to be an expert in this area - teapot does have some language characters near the base of the spout, but otherwise there are no marks or signatures, suggesting to me that these were not pieces manufactured for export. Porcelain with white base color and brown decorated handles, spouts and edges - The pot has a hand-decorated design of beautiful ladies harvesting flowers - cups have a reduced but matching similar vignette. The design is enhanced with nice, raised textural enameling. Pot is 9 1/4" tall with max width of about 8" from handle to spout - Cups are 2 7/8" tall, roughly 2 7/8" diameter and 3 5/8" wide.
Note some condition issues - primarily with the teapot lid, which has a big chunk broker out of it - the missing material all sits below the collar, though, so it's not visible at all when the lid is on the pot. There is also a spidering crack on the lid top, but it does not appear to have been broken apart or repaired in any way. Other than this, the pieces are in good condition, especially considering the cups, in particular, are very thin-walled porcelain. Some soil, and one cup has a little bottom crazing, but no other fleabites, chips or cracks that I can see.
I have tried to fully photograph, please review photos carefully to make your own determination of overall condition and appeal, and don't hesitate to ask any questions prior to bidding - thanks for looking!
