Vintage Thingies Thursday – Art Deco Tea Set

I am glad to participate this week in Vintage Thingies Thursday, though a bit late in the day. My item is an antique Noritake white porcelain with encrusted gold design – Made in Japan. Here it is in a brass Princess House tray.
This early Art Deco tea set, is a three-piece service consisting of teapot and cover, sugar bowl and cover, and cream jug.
Measurements are:
Teapot - 5.5" high; 8.5" from spout to handle
Creamer 3.25" high at spout; 5" from spout to handle
Sugar 4.5" high; 6" handle to handle

It has raised gilt decoration on white ground,including roses.

The maker’s mark in green: NORITAKE/ "M" surrounded by a wreath/Handpainted/ Made in Japan, dates it to about 1918.

With so many things in my tea wares I’m selling this Art Deco tea set to concentrate on completing some newer dishware sets.
Thanks for stopping by and viewing my VTT item. Leave a comment, please.
