These tea cups and plates are absolutely gorgeous. They belonged to my grandmother who had them for at least 50 years. They are very thin, fine porcelain China.
Each tea cup has a 3D beautiful dragon on it, as do the plates. They are a mostly royal blue color. Each cup has several raised dots on the handle.
I believe the set originally had 8 pieces but these are very fragile and were down to 6. My grandmother has passed so I do not have the provenance but these appear to be Kutani hand painted tea cups from Japan. Tea Cups 3 ¼ across including handle.They are vintageand in great condition: no cracks, chips or repairs.
