Japanese Porcelain Tea Coffee Set NIB Geisha Lithophane
This porcelain tea or demi-tasse coffee set was purchased from an estate sale. It appears to be new and un-used in its original box. There are 6 cups, 6 saucers, 6 spoons, and a caddy with wrapped rattan handle. Some of the designs include: cherry trees, bamboo, Oriental houses, mountains, moon bridge, etc. The cups have pictures in the bases, the face of an Oriental woman or geisha, which can be seen if you hold the cup to the light and look at the underside. The pictures, called lithophanes, are created by the variation in thickness of the porcelain clay. The cardboard box is covered with black and white decorative paper. All the black areas are furry feeling. The box is 16.5" x 11" x 4.5" high. Everything is in excellent condition.
