Hand-decorated and hand-thrown antique eggshell porcelain tea set, Japanese export-ware, cWWI. Marked on back, cups in gilt on red ground, other pieces in red.

Includes teapot, milk jug, sugar-bowl with lid, 9 demitasses and 11 saucers. Delicately but rather crudely made and painted (obviously handmade). Many small differences and flaws in size, shape and decoration. Excellent condition apart from missing cups and saucer.

Teapot 15cm high, cups 5cm high, saucers 11cm across.

Brought back from Japan by soldier returning from the First World War, as a gift to my Grandfather for his young daughter - mistaken for a child's tea set. Arrived in NZ intact in a biscuit tin and newspaper. But her small brother dropped a ball on 3 cups and a saucer.
