Mid 20th Century Japanese Satsuma Tea Set
Date: 2nd quarter 20th C.
This is a complete set in mint condition—a rare find. Set includes teapot with lid, creamer with lid, sugar with lid, six cups & saucers, six 6 1/2" desert plates. Came out of an estate of a man who purchased the set in Japan during the Korean war and said it sat unused in the china cabinet the whole time—hence the excellent condition. Each piece is marked in gold: Soko china / Hand-Painted / MADE IN JAPAN with two Japanese characters in vertical rectangle (see picture). The color palette is so lovely—celedon green bamboo, cherry blossom pink, sky water blue, peach with touches of orange and red with gold outlines in a cream-colored crackled glaze, typical of satsuma ware. Each piece is completely hand-painted and unique. The rim is painted in the classic rust-red and gold linear triangles pattern.
