Somayaki Saki/Tea set: Rare set which includes sugar & creamer, 6 cups and 5 saucers. I also have the small tea pot which has damage but will include because it could easily be repaired.

This set is circa 1960s - Somayaki was established in 1690 in Fukushima, Northern Japan. One of the most recognisable characteristics of Somayaki is its "Hashirigoma"(galloping horse motif). Another unique feature is the use of "double walls". The pieces are constructed with an inner wall which can be seen through cut-outs in the outer shell. As well as adding an interesting dimension, this feature also has the added advantage of keeping the tea warm while leaving the outer surface cool. "Aohibi" is the name given to the distinctive blue crackled glaze seen on most Somayaki ware. A combination of these three distinctive features combine to create warm, rustic pieces imbued with a sense of history and peculiar to the area in which they are produced.

This set is fabulous, very little wear to the gold accents. The loop on the pot (as mentioned) is cracked and looks to have been repaired previously. I do have the broken piece as well as the wicker handle. Price includes FedEx shipping!

Measurements:
Cups 3" tall 3" diameter
Saucer 5.25" diameter
Sugar 3.25" tall
Creamer 4.25 including lid
Pot 4.5" tall
