Little girls have always loved to play with dishes that are "just their size", sharing tea parties with their friends and their dolls. Although this set was not mine as a child, I distinctly remember my first set of real china dinnerware, and the hours of fun it brought. My doll's name was Mary Alice, and my best friend was Janie. We spent many an afternoon setting tables and sipping lemonade tea.

My research into dating vintage Japanese porcelain items has brought me to some criteria that I understand is correct "in most instances". This set for instance is marked simply, JAPAN, in dark red lettering that has been stamped beneath the final glaze of the pieces. We have learned that this was a marking used during the period from 1921 until 1939. Nothing was imported from Japan from 1939 to 1945. From 1945 until 1952 the Occupied Japan designation was used, and finally from then on the terminology Made in Japan was required. Based on this information I am assuming that this set of dishes was made after 1921, during the prewar years.

The set consists of a 6-1/4 inch Platter, a Covered Tureen, four plates, a teapot 3 inches tall and 4-1/2 inches wide, a creamer, a sugar bowl, four cups and four saucers. The teapot has a lid; however, the little sugar bowl is missing its lid. The set is white glazed china with a delicate pink floral design. They definitely have the look and feel of the older Japanese pieces. Whether used as a display, or to delight a child and spark her imagination, these dishes are waiting for a new home and memories to be made.

I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible; however since most of the items are either antique or at best vintage, due to their age, they are sold in "as is" condition.
