1917 “THE LITTLE HOSTESS” TEA SET – MORIUMURA BROS JAPAN
This is a fabulous vintage boxed Doll or Child’s Tea set that dates to 1917 and was made by Moriumura Bros, Japan. It is in it’s original box with printed information on the front of the box. There is some damage to pieces as described below but the pattern is a gorgeous Art Deco style design. Many of the pieces are stamped on the base and this set has been hand painted.
It has 21 pieces to the teaset which is blue, yellow and black . Pieces include 6 cups with 1 having a broken handle, 4 saucers (2 missing) with 2 with chips, 6 plates with 1 having a chip. 1 teapot with lid, 1 sugar basin with lid – hairline to handle and 1 milk jug.
Overall the box is in good solid condition with wear as expected of a piece of this age.
This is a great set to display with lovely vibrant colours and ideal to display with an antique Moriumura Bros antique doll. These sets are getting very hard to find.
