I can only find a few second-hand pieces when I search so I would guess that they went out of business some time ago. It looks like nice quality though.

Thanks LightSpeed
Yeah it’s a bummer there isn’t much info around online
Other than hitting up an old fashioned book or two I don’t think I’ll find much

It’s a really lovely set- I’m sure it’s vintage
Simplistic style

Stoneware just keeps on going. You have a lovely set indeed. From what I remember, it was all the rage in the 70's in the UK at least. May you have many years of pleasure from your purchase.

Why do people worship Japan? LOL

A cheap Chinese teacup works exactly the same. Might give you cancer or brain damage eventually but you can pay for that with the money you save.

It wasn’t really why I purchased the set it just happens to have a Japanese mark... so I thought I’d research something I’d collected out of interest - it didnt cost much?
Anyways - that was definitely a different comment then I expected cheers for that.

LOL

It wasn't a serious troll or anything. I was just blabbing. I like Japanese stuff too.

It is more about what you like not where it was made?

She just likes it and why would that be a problem?

I got some very cheap cups from a Mexico village some years ago, i still love them and i did not get any illness out of it, but i love the effort that was put on them and how beautiful they look, the entire set cost me about 15 dollars but friends have offered up to 200 and i did not give them up ever


She never said that being Japanese made them special, it was just one aspect of the experience


Yonde Kurete Arigato I guess? LMFAO

Oh that's a lovely story! I inherited a few things like that as well but i don't keep them with me, i keep them with my mom as i don't feel like able to take care of them lol

You got very lucky, i think that this set is more valuable than whatever price they put on it

Yes it’s better and more enjoyable when you have nice things with sentiment attached and you know you can keep them safe and sound I guess
It was a cute story and she was really nice
It’s a really simple set but I’d love to know who made it or where it was made but might be hard to pinpoint unfortunately
