  1. My father has a whole tea set very similar in design to this, which we think is between 60-100 years old and in perfect nick, no missing pieces.

    Do you know whether its worth anything? Or could you tell me anything about it?

    The tea cups also have a photograph in bottom which you can see when you hold it up to the light.

    Regards

    • Hello Julie,

      Your father’s tea set sounds very nice indeed, especially the part with the photograph on the underside which is seen when held up to the light. I have seen these before here in Japan though I have not often had a chance to sell them and therefore know little about the history or value of this type of Japanese ceramic. I think that your best bet might be to locate an antique dealer in your area who specializes in Japanese ceramics as they can probably give you a better idea of value than I. I’m sorry that I don’t have the proper knowledge or experience for this type of appraisal and I hope that you can find an expert who can help you.

      Sincerely,

      Kurt
