What a darling child’s tea set marked “Occupied Japan” that dates from 1945 to 1951. The “refined camphor box” along with a blue checked homespun napkin is also included and acts as a table display (when the box is turned upside down) to accommodate the napkin, i.e. tablecloth for the tea set.
The tea pot sports the phrase, “Seek The Lord” on the front and even has a removable lid. Some of the pretty blue glaze is inconsistent as there are lighter and darker streaks running though the bands that lend a striped appearance. The condition is fine as there are no chips or cracks to report!
A small camphor box was used to store the dishes in and as mentioned above can also be used as a great display. It also is in very good condition without any cracks or chips to report. It may have had a lid at one point because of the inside grooves near to top location that would have accommodated a slide top cover. The dovetailed construction makes for a sturdy piece. Some of the wood has a dark appearance on the outside near the corners and also on the front and back sides. There are also indications of small stains located inside the box.
This gathering does not take up much room and can be displayed near a child’s dresser. Whimsical small teddies can be added that will certainly enjoy their tea party by creating visual excitement to your bedroom or any other place of your choosing! Enjoy!
Camphor box measures 6 ½” across the front and back (right to left), stands 3” tall and is 5” deep.
