This Aint From Starbucks

In a old dusty box stuffed with tissue paper I came across what appears to be a coffee service set from Japan.


the cups and saucers are paper thin and very fragile



This coffee service set looks to be from the 1950’s and is in great shape

on the bottom of all the pieces there is this Japanese writing


Now my Japanese isn’t very good

so I don’t know what that means or says

and by not very good I mean

Wakarimasu Ka



in all this stuff from Japan I find in Mom’s Garage you’d think I could find a decent camera

  1. Actually it might be Chinese or Korean. I don’t think Japanese have loop handles on their pitchers or no handles on their cups. Very pretty stuff though!

  2. Thanks Jay

    That’s the type of info I’m looking for
