This is a Vintage Blue Willow tea set for 6 from my Grandmother's estate.
I'm not sure about the brand or manufacturer because I do not collect this type of collector's item but there is an Asian type "crown" above the made in Japan lettering as shown in photo 2.
The light weight china set is made of what looks like bone china and not the heavier ceramic that I've seen elsewhere. This beautiful dark blue and creamy white Set comes with:
tea/coffee pot with lid that is 7 1/2 inch tall,
a sugar bowl (missing lid),
6 smaller type tea cups with 2 1/2 inch diameter at the rim,
twelve saucers (3 of the saucers has slight crazing in the blue and white glaze) that are 4 3/4 inches diameter.
Other than the crazing that has been described, it is a very beautiful setting with no chips.
I will be listing other vintage items from my Grandmother's estate occassionally so please keep us marked as a favorite.
